Summary: College Geometry is an approachable text, covering both Euclidean and Non-Euclidean geometry. This text is directed at the one semester course at the college level, for both pure mathematics majors and prospective teachers. A primary focus is on student participation, which is promoted in two ways: (1) Each section of the book contains one or two units, called Moments for Discovery, that use drawing, computational, or reasoning experiments to guide students to an oft ...show moreen surprising conclusion related to section concepts; and (2) More than 650 problems were carefully designed to maintain student interest.
Features NEW! Geometer's Sketchpad Projects. A part of each exercise section, and incorporated into selected examples.
End of Chapter Material. In addition to the current chapter summary and End of Chapter True/False questions, there are new conceptual exercises to test the students' understanding of the chapter material.
Moments for Discovery. Reinforces chapter material by encouraging students to experiment.
Historical perspective. Appropriate biographies are written throughout the text, to give context to the material that students are learning.
Our Geometric World. Placed throughout each chapter, this feature illustrates the real world application of the material that students are learning.
