Online Geometry Workshop: Flatland Seminar

Long a favorite of Michael Waski's Seminar repertoire, this novella, Flatland, can serve as a basis for many discussions about dimensions as they arise in an adolescent math classroom and is a great touchstone for these key ideas.

Course content:   

Flatland: A Romance of Many Dimensions  is a short novella written in 1884 by Edwin A. Abbott as a satire of the social and class structure of Victorian England, while simultaneously being a mathematical treatise on the idea of properties of different dimensions. 

The book can serve as a basis for many discussions about dimensions as they arise in an adolescent math classroom and is a great touchstone for these key ideas.

Over the next four sessions, we will be reading through and discussing the book from both mathematical and a literature perspective. Participants will need to have their own copy (Less than $3.00 on Amazon) and will need to read the required chapters before each session.

Session 1: Part 1 – OUR WORLD Ch. 1-6 (pp. 3-21)

Session 2: Part 1 – OUR WORLD Ch. 7-12 (pp. 22-40)

Session 3: Part 2 – OTHER WORLDS Ch. 13-17 (pp. 41-63)

Session 4: Part 2 – OTHER WORLDS Ch. 18-22 (pp. 64-82)
