By Saul Stahl

Designed to notify readers in regards to the formal improvement of Euclidean geometry and to arrange potential highschool arithmetic teachers to educate Euclidean geometry, this article heavily follows Euclid's vintage, Elements. The textual content augments Euclid's statements with acceptable historic remark and plenty of routines — greater than 1,000 perform workouts offer readers with hands-on adventure in fixing geometrical difficulties.
In addition to offering a historic standpoint on airplane geometry, this article covers non-Euclidean geometries, permitting scholars to domesticate an appreciation of axiomatic structures. extra subject matters comprise circles and standard polygons, projective geometry, symmetries, inversions, knots and hyperlinks, graphs, surfaces, and casual topology. This republication of a well-liked textual content is considerably less costly than previous variations and gives a brand new Preface by means of the author.
