This text uses
innovative discussions, cartoons, anecdotes, examples, and exercises that
unfailingly capture and hold the studentís interest. This edition remains
proof-based although the presentation is in the less formal paragraph format.
The approach focuses on guided discovery to help students develop geometric
intuition. The logical organization of lessons is followed by a sequence of
exercises that allow students to learn as they go, developing understanding
through practice. Algebra reviews serve as refreshers for algebraic methods
that will be used in subsequent chapters.
