Methods for Euclidean Geometry
by Owen Byer, Felix Lazebnik and Deirdre L. Smeltzer
Methods for Euclidean Geometry is a college geometry textbook with a unique mission. Instead of treating the subject as a distinct unit in the math curriculum, the authors integrate a variety of mathematical disciplines to engage and enlighten the reader... MAA Reviews
Methods for Euclidean Geometry explores one of the oldest and most beautiful of mathematical subjects. The book begins with a thorough presentation of classical solution methods for plane geometry problems, but its distinguishing feature is the subsequent collection of methods which have appeared since 1600. For example, the coordinate method, which is a central part of the book, has been part of mathematics for four centuries. However, it has rarely served as a tool that students consider using when faced with geometry problems. The same holds true regarding the use of trigonometry, vectors, complex numbers, and transformations. The book presents each of these as selfcontained topics, providing examples of their applications to geometry problems. Both strengths and weaknesses of various methods, as well as the ranges of their effective applications, are discussed. Importance is placed on the problems and their solutions. The book contains numerous problems of varying difficulty; over a third of its contents are devoted to problem statements, hints, and complete solutions. The book can be used as a textbook for geometry courses; as a source book for geometry and other mathematics courses; for capstone, problemsolving, and enrichment courses; and for independent study courses.
