Lecture Description

We start this course in elementary mathematics suited for a general audience by introducing geometry in the simplest possible way: by using a sheet of graph paper as the basic model, and then doing some simple arithmetic in a geometrical context.
We introduce the horizontal and vertical lines of the grid plane, grid points, segments and rectangles, along with the idea of measuring their sizes. This is a good place to start practicing counting: and we count a number of interesting things associated to a rectangle, including numbers of sub rectangles of a certain size, paths from one corner to another, and tilings by 1x2 or 2x1 dominoes.
