Synopses & Reviews

Book News Annotation:

As intimated by its title, this undergraduate textbook in geometry seeks to provide a unified framework for understanding the three classical geometries within a wider mathematics cannon that connects students to core historical studies while still allowing for the exploration of new and cutting edge research. The work examines Euclidean, elliptic and hyperbolic geometries, beginning with basic concepts and provides students with example problems that build in complexity. Appendices providing advanced examples and sample equations are included. Kay is a retired professor of mathematics. Annotation ©2011 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

Synopsis:

This text presents a unified treatment of the three classical geometries: Euclidean, hyperbolic, and spherical (elliptic). This unique approach of combining all three geometries simultaneously using twelve concise axioms has never appeared in book form before at this level. The text introduces each axiom, including its reasons for use and implications, and then explains it in detail. In addition to numerous figures, examples, and exercises, the book includes Geometera (TM)s Sketchpad to help students build and investigate math models, objects, figures, and graphs. The author provides programs for students to use on a supporting website. A solutions manual is available for qualifying instructors.
