The Third Edition of Elementary Geometry for College Students covers the important principles and real-world applications of plane geometry with additional chapters on solid geometry, analytic geometry, and trigonometry. The text's largely visual approach, strongly influenced by both NCTM and AMATYC standards, begins with the presentation of a concept followed by the examination and development of a theory, verification of the theory through deduction, and finally, application of the principles to the real world. Designed with the appropriate pacing and appearance for college-level students, this text offers a welcome alternative for instructors who, in the past, have had to use secondary-level texts for this course.Videotapes, professionally produced for this text and hosted by Dana Mosely, offer a valuable resource for further instruction and review.Reminder marginal notes reinforce theorems or formulas from previous chapters to help students progress through the course.Enhanced Chapter Openers introduce students to the principle notion of the chapter and provide real-world context.Discovery features designed to reinforce the inductive approach of this text include activities that enable students to discover geometry concepts on their own and section tools that provide students with hands-on application of concepts.Applications throughout text reinforce the connection of geometry to the real world. A Look Beyond chapter-ending sections provide engaging sketches, sometimes with historical background.Summaries of constructions, postulates, and theorems are provided to reinforce learning. In addition, a numbering system for postulates and theorems presents a user-friendly structure.
