This text comfortably serves as a bridge between lower-level mathematics courses (calculus and linear algebra) and upper-level courses (real analysis and abstract algebra). It fully implements the latest national standards and recommendations regarding geometry for the preparation of high school mathematics teachers. Foundations of Geometry particularly teaches good proof-writing skills, emphasises the historical development of geometry, and addresses certain issues concerning the place of geometry in human culture.
