Learning outcomes of the course unit

Students should be able to construct conics from the properties of their foci, perspective colineation, perspective affinity. Understand the basics of projections: Monge`s, orthogonal axonometry, central projection and perspective projection. Display the basic geometric bodies in each projection. Construct sections of bodies. Project a building using a perspective projection. Vertical picture, reconstruction of the elements of internal orientation.
