Angewandte Geometrie 1

Georg Glaeser
Art and Technology, Geometry
2020W, Vorlesung und Übungen (VU), 3.0 ECTS, 3.0 semester hours, course number S03622

Description

The lecture is about theory and the numerous applications of geometry. The practical portion delves deeper into the subjects of the course. Students have the chance to select several of these subjects, to research them further, and to present their results. A special emphasis is put on the ability to express oneself using geometrically correct terminology, on the clarity of the ideas presented, and on the style of the presentation itself. This is good practice for aspiring architects and designers, who will eventually have to present ideas convincingly, and in a scientifically correct context.

 

If it is going to be necessary to switch to distance learning during the semester, this course will be continued virtually. More information will be provided in due time.

Examination Modalities

Students will usually give a paper (or papers) after taking the Applied Geometry exam, so a certain standard in terms of basic geometric knowledge can be expected. Assessment for this course includes the delivery and the written/electronic form of the paper(s) as well as, more generally, constructive contributions to discussions.

 

If a switch to distance learning will become necessary during the semester, there will be no public presentations. Instead, written contributions will eventually result in the grade. Further information will be provided by the lecturer.

Comments

The lecture is held in English.

CHANGE OF VENUE!

If the "Corona-Ampel" by the Corona-Ampel-Kommission declares color "Red" for Vienna, there will be a switch to distance learing according to rules of the University of Appied Arts Vienna for this semester, and this course will be held virtually. In this case, further information will be provided by the lecturer in due time.

Please wear a mask and keep a safe distance during the lecture in case of color "Orange" for Vienna.
