Unterhaltsame Geometrie

Was ist Geometrie? Eine junge Dame, so gefragt, antwortet ohne Zögern: "Oh, das ist das, wo etwas bewiesen wird." Gedrängt, ein Beispiel flir so ein zu beweisendes Etwas zu geben, mußte sie passen. Auch war ihr entgangen, warum es eine gute Sache war, etwas zu beweisen. Die Reaktion der Dame ist typisch für viele Menschen, die meinen, auf der Schule Geometrie gelernt zu haben. Sie vergessen alle die Hauptsache und ver gegenwärtigen sich nicht, warum dieser Stoff durchgenommen worden ist. Das Vergessen der Sätze ist keine Tragödie. Wir vergessen vieles von dem, was wir während unserer Schulzeit lernten - oder sollte ich sagen, was uns dort begegnete? Nichtsdesto weniger ist es bedauer...

Invitation to Geometry

Intended for students of many different backgrounds with only a modest knowledge of mathematics, this text features self-contained chapters that can be adapted to several types of geometry courses. Only a slight acquaintance with mathematics beyond the high-school level is necessary, including some familiarity with calculus and linear algebra. This text's introductions to several branches of geometry feature topics and treatments based on memorability and relevance. The author emphasizes connections with calculus and simple mechanics, focusing on developing students' grasp of spatial relationships. Subjects include classical Euclidean material, polygonal and circle isoperimetry, conics and Pascal's theorem, geometrical optimization, geometry and trigonometry on a sphere, graphs, convexity, and elements of differential geometry of curves. Additional material may be conveniently introduced in several places, and each chapter concludes with exercises of varying degrees of difficulty.
