    Course description: This course is a gentle introduction to algebraic geometry,
    focusing particularly on the theory of algebraic curves of small degree. Topics will
    include conics and cubics, transformations of the plane and the projective plane,
    intersections of curves, singularities, and the group law on a cubic curve.
