Elementary Geometry for College Students PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Elementary Geometry for College Students free pdf Building on the success of its first five editions, the Sixth Edition of the market-leading text explores the important principles and real-world applications of plane, coordinate, and solid geometry. Strongly influenced by both NCTM and AMATYC standards, the text includes intuitive, inductive, and deductive experiences in its explorations. Goals of the authors for the students include a comprehensive development of the vocabulary of geometry, an intuitive and inductive approach to development of principles, and the strengthening of deductive skills that leads to both verification of geometric theories and the solution of geometry-based real world applications. Updates in this edition include the addition of 150 new problems, new applications, new Discover! activities and examples and additional material on select topics such as parabolas and a Three-Dimensional Coordinate System.

About Daniel C. Alexander

Daniel C. Alexander, now retired, taught mathematics at the secondary and college levels for over 40 years. His final 25 years of teaching were at Parkland College in Champaign, Illinois- before retirement, his position at Parkland College was as mathematics professor emeritus. Although Professor Alexander held undergraduate and graduate degrees from Southern Illinois University, he also completed considerable post graduate course work as well. He delivered many talks and participated in various panel discussions at mathematics conferences of IMACC, AMATYC, and ICTM. Further, he had numerous published articles in the ICTM, NCTM,and AMATYC mathematics journals. Geralyn M. Koeberlein, now retired, taught mathematics at Mahomet-Seymour High School in Mahomet, Illinois for 34 years. She taught several levels of math, from Algebra I to AB Calculus. In the last few years of her career, Geralyn was also Chair of the Math and Science Department. After receiving her Master's Degree from the University of Illinois early in her teaching years, Geralyn continued her education by receiving over 90 hours of post graduate credit. She was a member of the the ICTM and the NCTM.
