Description of Elementary Geometry for College Students, 7th Edition:
Building on the success of previous editions, ELEMENTARY GEOMETRY FOR COLLEGE STUDENTS explores the important principles and real-world applications of plane, coordinate and solid geometry. Strongly influenced by both NCTM and AMATYC standards, the seventh edition includes intuitive, inductive and deductive experiences in its explorations. It aims to help students develop a comprehensive vocabulary of geometry, an intuitive and inductive approach to the development of principles, and strong deductive skills that lead to both verification of geometric theories and the solution of geometry-based, real-world applications. Over 150 new exercises provide additional practice in writing proofs. Expanded coverage of point paths, overlapping congruent triangles and increased focus on continuity and discontinuity in geometric figures, and the congruence of quadrilaterals provide students more focus in these areas. A new preliminary chapter P introduces set concepts and formal reasoning to start students at the same level.Important Notice: Media content referenced within the product description or the product text may not be available in the ebook version.
