Summary: This comprehensive, best-selling text focuses on the study of many different geometries -- rather than a single geometry -- and is thoroughly modern in its approach. Each chapter is essentially a short course on one aspect of modern geometry, including finite geometries, the geometry of transformations, convexity, advanced Euclidian geometry, inversion, projective geometry, geometric aspects of topology, and non-Euclidean geometries. The Fifth Edition reflects the re ...show morecommendations of the COMAP proceedings on "Geometry's Future," the NCTM standards, and the Professional Standards for Teaching Mathematics. ...show lessEdition/Copyright: 5TH 98
