summary The article presents the 'Digital Geometry Techniques' course taught at the second year of the undergraduate course at the Faculty of Architecture in the Warsaw University of Technology - WUT. The course introduces mathematical theory and generative modeling in order to prepare the students to consciously plan their creative process and to choose the set of tools according to an initial analysis of modeling constraints. The students gain knowledge on advanced CAAD techniques through learning functions of a particular program, and also by tackling geometry-related problems derived from real-world architectural projects. They are able to develop individual solutions using adequate techniques. We present three different students' semester works as examples to reflect on the significance of mathematics and algorithmization in the process of problem solving and form creation in architecture and urban design.
