Get to Know Us. So you will miss out on some portions which are not covered by this book.
Many fascinating properties of circles, triangles, quadrilaterals, and conics are developed. Functions and Graphs Dover Books on Mathematics. For a typical America high school students I would recommend teometry read Kiselev’s Geometry book first available at [ Among the many beautiful and nontrivial theorems in geometry found here are the theorems of Ceva, Menelaus, Pappus, Desargues, Pascal, and Brianchon.
If you are talking about ” Introduction to Geometry ” by Coxeter and ” Geometry Revisited ” by Coxeter and Greitzer, the consensus seems to be that both of them are pretty advanced, but “Introduction to Geometry” is significantly more so, while “Geometry Revisited” is closer to something ‘right after high school geometry class,’ so I guess you should start with the latter assuming you do have some geometry knowledge already.
The book provides an in-depth explanation of some geometrical concepts that passed over my head in Geometry class, and the exercises in the book provide a fun activity to practice what has been learned. This book is not yet featured on Listopia. Lists with This Book. If your goal is to get a sense of what different kinds of problems, techniques, and geimetry geometry has evolved to deal with, Introduction to Geometry is a “dated” but somewhat comprehensive choice.
For coxetter, the whole “world” of computational geometry came on the scene after Coexeter’s book.

User Review – Flag as inappropriate An awesome book for beginners to learn geometry. Also for a more structured treatment of cxeter topics, I recommend “college geometry” by Nathan Altshiller-Court. Eevisited couple good ones to work on after this book would be Johnson’s “Advanced Euclidean Geometry” and Court’s “College Geometry”, both out of print unfortunately but maybe a nearby library wold have them?

Depending on the section, there are problems at the end of each section; like any book there are easy ones with fairly obvious solutions and there are hard ounes that take a lot of thought.

If one has heavy sledding in places than geometty at the wiki article of the topic causing trouble might help. An advantage in this recruiting endeavor is the high degree of visualizability of geometry, the easy comprehensibility of its problems and interesting theorems, and the challenge emanating from these problems to occupy oneself with their solutions.
