Editorial Review Product Description Harold Jacobs's Geometry created a revolution in the approach to teaching this subject, one that gave rise to many ideas now seen in the NCTM Standards. Since its publication nearly one million students have used this legendary text. Suitable for either classroom use or self-paced study, it uses innovative discussions, cartoons, anecdotes, examples, and exercises that unfailingly capture and hold student interest. This edition is the Jacobs for a new generation. It has all the features that have kept the text in class by itself for nearly 3 decades, all in a thoroughly revised, full-color presentation that shows today's students how fun geometry can be. The text remains proof-based although the presentation is in the less formal paragraph format. The approach focuses on guided discovery to help students develop geometric intuition.

Editorial Review Product Description Luanne Rice is a New York Times bestselling author whose moving novels of love and family have inspired the devotion of readers everywhere. Rice began her writing career. She is the author of twenty-six novels, most recently Last Kiss, Light of the Moon, What Matters Most, The Edge of Winter, Sandcastles, and Summer of Roses. Rice lives in New York City and Old Lyme, Connecticut. See more of her books in the Luanne Rice Author Store. I grew up in a triangle of sisters, the oldest of three girls. Invisible lines stretched between us, never quite equidistant. Within our tight threesome, one always felt a little left out.We told each other everything, except the occasional deep, dark secret.And when one learned the other two had known, it was a knife in the heart.The Geometry Of Sisters tells of three sets of sisters, the amazing and treacherous ways they love and protect each other.It’s set in a New England prep school, on a cliff in Newport, Rhode Island.Newport, because my sisters and I lived there the year after our father died, and prep school because... My youngest sister was (and is) brilliant and the most sensitive girl on earth.My mother taught at our junior high.It was a rough school, and some kids gave us a hard time for being a teacher’s daughters.My middle sister and I survived, but I decided our youngest sister needed a different environment.My father was sick, my mother preoccupied with his illness, so I felt it was up to me. I researched private schools at our downtown library, got lost in catalogues promising fine academics, graceful architecture, rolling hills, tradition passed down from class to class, a sense of safety and enclosure.I thought somehow, in a school like that, my sister would be protected from life’s pain and dangers. She was accepted to Miss Porter’s School with a full scholarship.She spent four years there, a test for our triangle.My middle sister and I would drive her to school, take her to the Farm Shop for lunch, find ways to keep us all close. When she went to Deerfield for “Winterim,” a month-long winter study opportunity, she asked my middle sister up for the weekend and a dance.This was one of my left-out times. I could have invited myself along, but such is the delicate sensibility of sisterhood--it’s the asking that counts.Equally, there have been occasions I’ve excluded one sister or the other, put her in the middle, known that she felt hurt; sisters feel the shards of each other’s pain. Life has taught me that the visible connection among sisters is no more intense and permanent than the unseen one. Welcome to the geometry of families.Are you part of a triangle, a straight line, a parallelogram, a circle?Are you a single point?Family members exist in relation to each other, not in bloodless planes, angles and lines, but in love, joy, hurt, and sorrow. My father died in April the year my sister graduated from Miss Porter’s.Death made us sad and wild.The three of us moved to Newport--we left home, but stayed together.My sisters worked at a boatyard; I wrote fiction.We spent evenings on Thames Street and at Bannister’s Wharf.I met a boy with deep-sea eyes.He lived in his family’s warehouse on a cobblestone alley; he painted boats.We took walks. My sisters and I were far from the protected enclosure of a New England boarding school, but how safe had it been, anyway?My father had died while she was a student there.Nothing could bring him back, life would soon take the three of us in different directions, and all those racing yachts and Australian sailors were an obstacle course of sorts. But that summer I had a boat-painting friend, and my sisters and I lived under the same roof, and the first seeds of the story that would become The Geometry Of Sisters were planted. --Luanne Rice (Photo © Gasper Tringale) Customer Reviews (23)

23. Geometry of Design: Studies in Proportion and Composition by Kimberly Elam | |

Editorial Review Product Description Geometry of Design-the first book in our new Design Briefs Series-takes a close look at a broad range of twentieth-century examples of design, architecture, and illustration (from the Barcelona chair to the Musica Viva poster, from the Braun handblender to the Conico kettle), revealing underlying geometric structures in their compositions. Explanations and techniques of visual analysis make the inherent mathematical relationships evident and a must-have for anyone involved in graphic arts. The book focuses not only on the classic systems of proportioning, such as the golden section and root rectangles, but also on less well known proportioning systems such as the Fibonacci Series. Through detailed diagrams these geometric systems are brought to life giving an effective insight into the design process. Customer Reviews (24)

Editorial Review Product Description String theory says we live in a ten-dimensional universe, but that only four are accessible to our everyday senses. According to theorists, the missing six are curled up in bizarre structures known as Calabi-Yau manifolds. In The Shape of Inner Space, Shing-Tung Yau, the man who mathematically proved that these manifolds exist, argues that not only is geometry fundamental to string theory, it is also fundamental to the very nature of our universe. Time and again, where Yau has gone, physics has followed. Now for the first time, readers will follow Yau’s penetrating thinking on where we’ve been, and where mathematics will take us next. A fascinating exploration of a world we are only just beginning to grasp, The Shape of Inner Space will change the way we consider the universe on both its grandest and smallest scales.

Editorial Review Product Description Curves and surfaces are objects that everyone can see, and many of the questions that can be asked about them are natural and easily understood. Differential geometry is concerned with the precise mathematical formulation of some of these questions. It is a subject that contains some of the most beautiful and profound results in mathematics yet many of these are accessible to higher-level undergraduates. Elementary Differential Geometry presents the main results in the differential geometry of curves and surfaces suitable for a first course on the subject. Prerequisites are kept to an absolute minimum – nothing beyond first courses in linear algebra and multivariable calculus – and the most direct and straightforward approach is used throughout. New features of this revised and expanded second edition include:
Praise for the first edition: "The text is nicely illustrated, the definitions are well-motivated and the proofs are particularly well-written and student-friendly…this book would make an excellent text for an undergraduate course, but could also well be used for a reading course, or simply read for pleasure." Australian Mathematical Society Gazette "Excellent figures supplement a good account, sprinkled with illustrative examples." Times Higher Education Supplement Customer Reviews (7)
Definately a good begineers book
Very appropriate for self-study
Written to teach rather than to impress

Geometry by Harold R Jacobs
Taught Classes With it Several Times, Fabulous for Home-Schoolers
Excellent user friendly geometry text
The best geometry textbook in existence, bar none. This book introduces logical proofs right at the beginning; you may have some difficulty convincing your kids or yourself that you need to work out all these silly logic puzzles in order to begin studying geometry, but you do. From there on, the book is a sheer joy to read, full of interesting and tricky problems, clear explanations, and of course those famous B.C. and Peanuts clips.

Editorial Review Product Description A fascinating and inspirational look at the vital link between the hidden geometrical order of the universe, geometry in nature, and the geometry of the man-made world. The Da Vinci Code has awakened the public to the powerful and very ancient idea that religious truths and mathematical principles are intimately intertwined. Sacred Geometry offers an accessible way of understanding how that connection is revealed in nature and the arts. Over the centuries, temple builders have relied on magic numbers to shape sacred spaces, astronomers have used geometry to calculate holy seasons, and philosophers have observed the harmony of the universe in the numerical properties of music. By showing how the discoveries of mathematics are manifested over and over again in biology and physics, and how they have inspired the greatest works of art, this illuminating study reveals the universal principles that link us to the infinite.
