about

The book constitutes an elementary course on Plane Euclidean Geometry, pitched at pre-university or at advanced high school level. It is a concise book treating the subject axiomatically, but since it is meant to be a first introduction to the subject, excessive rigour is avoided, making it appealing to a younger audience as well. The aim is to cover the basics of the subject, while keeping the subject lively by means of challenging and interesting exercises. This makes it relevant also for students participating in mathematics circles and in mathematics olympiads.

Each section contains several problems, which are not purely drill exercises, but are intended to introduce a sense of "play" in mathematics, and inculcate appreciation of the elegance and beauty of geometric results. There is an abundance of colour pictures illustrating results and their proofs. A section on hints and a further section on detailed solutions to all the exercises appear at the end of the book, making the book ideal also for self-study.

Contents:

  • Geometric Figures
  • Congruent Triangles
  • Quadrilaterals
  • Similar Triangles
  • Circles

Readership: Advanced high school, pre-university and undergraduate students in mathematics.
Key Features:

  • While there are many splendid books that cover planar Euclidean geometry at a more advanced level using higher, university-level mathematics, this book is elementary and is accessible even to high-school students
  • This book is meant to be a fun read, quick, but at the same time aims at showing the uninitiated reader the wonderful world of plane Euclidean geometry without excessive detail or a too superficial coverage
