Algebraic geometry describes the relationship between algebra and geometry. In this project, we aim to explore how geometric problems translate to algebraic problems, and we introduce the notion of Grassmann algebras to explore how the answers to geometric problems differ in anti-commutative spaces.
Specifically, we aim to consider the problem of determining the degree of a map between algebraic curves, its algebraic equivalent, and how one might pose a related question in the super case.
