Modern Geometry (Classic Reprint)

Modern Geometry (Classic Reprint)
Excerpt from Modern Geometry

Our experience tends to shew that boys find no little difficulty, at the outset, in mastering the ideas of Modern Plane Geometry; and, especially, in solving the problems usually set. We have therefore put in a number of quite easy exercises, arranged to lead by easy stages to the Scholarship questions at the end of Chapters.

The Teaching of Drawing (Classic Reprint)

The Teaching of Drawing (Classic Reprint)
Excerpt from The Teaching of Drawing

Drawing in infant schools is somewhat beyond the scope of this book, which is written more with a view of dealing with the teaching of drawing as required in schools for older scholars by the Science and Art Department, and which the teachers must necessarily thoroughly master to meet the requirements and earn the grants. This money payment hampers and restricts in many ways, by confining all to one hard and fast line. Many would like to vary the course or introduce fresh matter, but there is not time to do both, and to earn the payments it is necessary to keep to the beaten track.

Conic Sections and Analytical Geometry: Theoretically and Practically Illustrated (Classic Reprint)

Conic Sections and Analytical Geometry: Theoretically and Practically Illustrated (Classic Reprint)
Excerpt from Conic Sections and Analytical Geometry: Theoretically and Practically Illustrated

In the preparation of the following work the Object has been to bring within the compass of one volume of convenient size an ele mentary treatise on both Conic Sections and Analytical Geometry.

In the first part, the properties of the curves known as the Conic Sections are demonstrated, principally by geometrical methods that is, in the investigations, the curves and parts connected with them are constantly kept before the mind by their graphic representations, and we reason directly upon them.

Euclid’s Elements of Geometry: Books I. II. III. IV. VI. and Portions of Books V. and XI, with Notes, Examples, Exercises, Appendices and a Collection of Examination Papers (Classic Reprint)


Excerpt from Euclid’s Elements of Geometry: Books I. II. III. IV. Vi. And Portions of Books V. And XI., With Notes, Examples, Exercises, Appendices and a Collection of Examination Papers

Great care has been taken to provide large and clear diagrams, and, by the use of varied lines, to mark the distinction between given lines and lines of construction, as well as between real and hypothetical constructions.

String, Straight-edge and Shadow: The Story of Geometry

String, Straight-edge and Shadow: The Story of Geometry
From the early peoples who marvelled at the geometry of nature — the beehive and bird’s nest — to ancient civilisations who questioned beautiful geometric forms and asked ‘why?’, the story of geometry spans thousands of years. Using only three simple tools — the string, the straight-edge and the shadow — human beings revealed the basic principles and constructions of elementary geometry. Weaving history and legend, this fascinating book reconstructs the discoveries of mathematics’s most famous figures. Through illustrations and diagrams, readers are able to follow the reasoning that lead to an ingenious proof of the Pythagorean theorem, an appreciation of the significance of the Golden Mean in art and architecture, or the construction of the five regular solids. This insightful and engaging book makes geometry accessible to everyone. Readers will be fascinated with how the knowledge and wisdom of so many cultures helped shape our civilisation today. String, Straight-edge and Shadow is also a useful and inspiring book for those teaching geometry in Steiner-Waldorf classrooms.
