Overview

MODERN GEOMETRY was written to provide undergraduate and graduate level mathematics education students with an introduction to both Euclidean and non-Euclidean geometries, appropriate to their needs as future junior and senior high school mathematics teachers. MODERN GEOMETRY provides a systematic survey of Euclidean, hyperbolic, transformation, fractal, and projective geometries. This approach is consistent with the recommendations of the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM), the International Society for Technology in Education (ISTE), and other professional organizations active in the preparation and continuing professional development of K-12 mathematics teachers.
