Practice questions: I encourage you to try as many exercises from Chapters 3 and 4 as possible. I picked a few that are definitely worth doing: 3.1 to 3.3, review 3.6 (we did this exercise in class), 3.7 (hint: you can use a bunch of central dilatations to prove that the 3 lines through A'' and B'', through A and B and through A' and B' are parallel, and also the 3 lines through A'' and B', through H and C and through B'' and A'), review 3.13, 3.17. 4.1 to 4.5, for 4.5 you may use the statement of proposition 4.13.

Syllabus: pdf.

The textbook is Vectors and transformations in plane geometry by Philippe Tondeur.
