    Properties of two- and three-dimensional space turn up almost everywhere in mathematics. For example, vectors
    represent points in space, equations describe shapes in space and transformations move shapes around in spaces;
    a fruitful idea is to classify transformations by the points and shapes that they leave fixed. Most
    mathematicians like to be able to 'see' in special terms why something is true, rather than simply relying on
    formulas. This model ties together the most useful notions from geometry - which give the meaning of the
    formulas - with the algebra that gives the methods of calculation. It is an introductory module assuming
    nothing beyond the common core of A-level Mathematics or equivalent.
