    is this like a geometry class?

    i wonder why geometry is not a required course in college

    For most physical science and math majors, I think it is...

    i got masters in math, but i was not required to take college geometry

    Wow. ˚¬˚ interesting. Maybe your discipline wasn't directly related to geometry?

    it was elective type course for all math majors at my university

    I know of a lot of people with degrees in math who end up working in finance and analysis; few actually apply geometry that I know of. :P

    but geometry is interesting and i think should had been required

    Definitely. It really solidifies many peoples' understanding of math; maybe we'd have more math majors if more people took geometry and visually stimulating mathematics!

    if we did geometry more, trigonometry and calculus will make much more sense because usually we use the unit circle and similarities

    especially in differentiating and integrating volumes and areas and arclength and stuff

    mathematics seems not so interesting, when you dont try to visualize it

    I was always wondering why when you differentiate the volume of a sphere looks like the surface area

    and I just found out that it was not a coincidence when I took geometry in college
