Overview

"A good textbook." ― Mathematical Gazette. This introduction to Euclidean geometry emphasizes both the theory and the practical application of isometries and similarities to geometric transformations. Each chapter begins with an optional commentary on the history of geometry. Contents include modern elementary geometry, isometries and similarities in the plane, vectors and complex numbers in geometry, inversion, and isometries in space. Numerous exercises appear throughout the text, many of which have corresponding answers and hints at the back of the book. Prerequisites for this text, which is suitable for undergraduate courses, include high school algebra, geometry, and elementary trigonometry. 1972 edition.
