This instructional school is aimed at college and university teachers, specializing in mathematics. We aim to cover the topic of isometry from several different points of view. Isometry (and symmtery) is an ubiquitous concept in science that is especially important in mathematics. We want to highlight seemingly different manifestations of isometry in three separate contexts, broadly connected to the three classical geometries: plane, hyperbolic and spherical.
