Format: Hardcover
I have used other Geometry books that seem to give over 1/3 of the book for basic elementary geometry and didn't even introduce proofs until almost 2/3 the way through the book! This book almost immediately starts out with some great information about Postulates, and lets the student slowly be introduced to the concept of "proofs" without throwing it on them near the end of the year. Numbered angles are usually written in red, which helps it stick out from the lines/segments/triangles and helps visual learners and others quickly identify parts of the diagram. Short Biographical notes tell of people that use geometry in the 'real world', short paragraphs include information about places that geometry are useful from house building to satelites in space. This is a VERY good geometry text and it comes HIGHLY recommended.

This is more that a book on Geometry. It covers the subject of Geometry in a logical fashion starting with the undefinables point, line, and plane. Next it discusses the extension of these concepts.

Also include is a discussion of deduction and induction. Concepts in logic are covered in an elementary manner.

This is a comprehesive treatment of Geometry from a purely mathematical perspective.
But it does not exclude a high school student from its content.

Proofs are incremental starting from first principals.

Well worth the price.

I am using this book for the first time and I am loving it. No topics are left out. There is a logical flow from one chapter to the next. But, more importantly, I have not found a single mistake so far after having gone through chapters 1,2,3,4,5,&7 with a fine tooth comb.

A great book for the price. Would have bought the Practice book by the same author but was too expensive.
