ab: Summary: Introducing models of hyperbolic geometry informally in the
setting of different worlds lets students naturally come up with the
idea that lines (shortest paths) can look like parts of Euclidean
circles. By learning to think like inhabitants of these worlds,
students are able to abandon their totally Euclidean view of lines and
take ownership of hyperbolic geometry.
