## A High School First Course in Euclidean Plane Geometry (Google eBook)A High School First Course in Euclidean Plane Geometry is intended to be a first course in plane geometry at the high school level. Individuals who do not have a formal background in geometry can also benefit from studying the subject using this book. The content of the book is based on Euclid's five postulates of plane geometry and the most common theorems. It promotes the art and the skills of developing logical proofs. Most of the theorems are provided with detailed proofs. A large number of sample problems are presented throughout the book with detailed solutions. Practice problems are included at the end of each chapter and are presented in three groups: geometric construction problems, computational problems, and theorematical problems. The answers to the computational problems are included at the end of the book. Many of those problems are simplified classic engineering problems that can be solved by average students. The detailed solutions to all the problems in the book are contained in the Solutions Manual. A High School First Course in Euclidean Plane Geometry is the distillation of the author's experience in teaching geometry over many years in U.S. high schools and overseas. The book is best described in the introduction. The prologue offers a study guide to get the most benefits from the book. |
