|David W. Henderson; Cornell University|
|A book that presents a series of problems. Most of the chapters start intuitively and are accessible to a general reader with no particular mathematics background; however, the discussions were written for mathematics majors and mathematics teachers and thus assume a corresponding level of interest and mathematical sophistication. An expanded and revised edition of Experiencing Geometry on Plane and Sphere, ranging from What is Straight? through theorems and postulates to polyhedra, manifolds, and the shape of space. Includes an appendix with Euclid's Definitions, Postulates, and Common Notions, and an annotated bibliography.|
