Hyperbolic geometry is a type of non-Euclidean geometry that arose historically when mathematicians tried to simplify the axioms of Euclidean geometry, and instead discovered unexpectedly that changing one of the axioms to its negation actually produced a consistent theory. The [course_title] provides an introduction to hyperbolic geometry. It starts by discussing what is meant by “distance” and what is “straight” about a straight line in the Euclidean plane R2. Then it gives an introduction to the hyperbolic plane. Topics include distance and area in the hyperbolic plane, distance-preserving maps, hyperbolic trigonometry and hyperbolic polygons.


This course does not involve any written exams. Students need to answer 5 assignment questions to complete the course, the answers will be in the form of written work in pdf or word. Students can write the answers in their own time. Each answer needs to be 200 words (1 Page). Once the answers are submitted, the tutor will check and assess the work.


Edukite courses are free to study. To successfully complete a course you must submit all the assignment of the course as part of the assessment. Upon successful completion of a course, you can choose to make your achievement formal by obtaining your Certificate at a cost of £49.

Having an Official Edukite Certification is a great way to celebrate and share your success. You can:

  • Add the certificate to your CV or resume and brighten up your career
  • Show it to prove your success
