13 September 2004 Vol. 9, No. 37 THE MATH FORUM INTERNET NEWS Dr. Math Introduces Geometry | Dr. Math Book Reviews Irene Etkowicz Eizen Grant - MET DR. MATH INTRODUCES GEOMETRY by the Math Forum @ Drexel John Wiley & Sons For almost a decade, kids have been writing to Dr. Math at the Math Forum Web site with questions about their math problems. And the math doctors at The Math Forum @ Drexel have been replying with clear explanations and helpful hints. "Dr. Math Introduces Geometry" is the third book in our series. The book includes dozens of letters from kids who've had trouble understanding the basic math concepts used in geometry, along with answers from trained volunteers drawn from a pool of college students, mathematicians, teachers, and professionals from the mathematical community. Topics covered include introduction to 2-D geometric figures, area and perimeter of 2-D geometric figures, circles, introduction to 3-D geometric figures, symmetry, and much more. For more information and a link to purchase the book from Amazon.com, please visit: http://mathforum.org/pubs/dr.mathbooks.html We hope the books will find a place in classroom, library, and home collections.
