Learning outcomes

The students should be able to construct ellipse by focus properties, the principles of perspective affinity, perspective collineation. They will get the basics of projection: coted projection, orthogonal axonometry, basic problems and be able to solve simple 3D problems, display simple geometric solids and surfaces in each type of projection.

Prerequisites

Basic knowledge of planar and 3D geometry as taught at secondary schools and basic skills of work with a ruler and pair of compasses.

Planned educational activities and teaching methods

Teaching methods depend on the type of course unit as specified in the article 7 of BUT Rules for Studies and Examinations - lectures.

Forms and criteria of assessment

Successful completion of the tests, attendance is mandatory.

Objective

Students should be able to construct: Euclidean constructions in plane, identical and similarity transforms in plane, ellipse by focus properties, understand the principles of perspective affinity, perspective collineation, using such properties in solving problems, understand and get the basics of projection: Monge`s, orthogonal axonometry. They should develop 3D visualization and be able to solve simple 3D problems, display simple geometric solids and surfaces in each type of projection.
