This book provides a geometrical experience that unifies Euclidean concepts generally discussed in traditional high school geometry courses with various non-Euclidean views of the world. It offers the reader a "map" for a voyage through plane geometry and its various branches, as well as side-trips that discuss analytic and transformational geometry.From the Back Cover:
This book provides a geometrical experience that unifies Euclidean concepts generally discussed in traditional high school geometry courses with various Non-Euclidean views of the world. The book offers the reader a "map" for a voyage through plane geometry and its various branches. It takes an informal tone while presenting the material in a reasonably rigorous manner as well as organizing it into a logical progression. Chapters are separated into independent units so readers can learn information in bites. Contains a summary at the conclusion of each chapter that includes a list of new definitions and theorems to aid in the organization of the material. Presents Euclidean and non-Euclidean geometrics with a significant amount of background information, that places much of the development of geometry in an historical context. A valuable reference book on basic geometry for almost any reader seeking additional information on the subject.
