    This is an introductory course on the theory of curves and surfaces in the three dimensional Euclidean space.
    After developing the theory of curves, we will study the geometry of a surface from both intrinsic and extrinsic point of view.
    Topics include first and second fundamental forms, various notions of curvature, and the famous Gauss-Bonnet theorem.
    a. Geometry of the Guass map; Gaussian, mean and principal curvature
    b. Geodesics
    c. Gauss Theorem
    d. Minimal surfaces
    e. Gauss-Bonnet theorem.
    f. Global Differential Geometry
