Hi, I am going to be teaching a class of home schoolers geometry. I am looking for recommendations on a "good geometry book" to use. The book should be targeted for the honors student (or college student). My perspective on what makes a good book is one that rigorously covers Euclidian geometry with emphasis on formal proof and little or no constructions. I have no problems with books that use real world examples and hands on explorations, but the ones that I have seen that go this direction do so at the expense of the rigor. Also we have no computers in the classroom.
One book I have seen a description of on the web is "Essentials of Geometry for College Students" by Lial, Steffensen & Johnson. Has anyone used this book and would like to comment?
Currently we are using Barbara Pools college algebra text and I am just ecstatic with how this book working out. The kids get a real kick that they are woring from a college text. Thanks for any help! Alan
