The book constitutes an elementary course on Plane Euclidean Geometry, pitched at pre-university or at advanced high school level. It is a concise book treating the subject axiomatically, but since it is meant to be a first introduction to the subject, excessive rigour is avoided, making it appealing to a younger audience as well. The aim is to cover the basics of the subject, while keeping the subject lively by means of challenging and interesting exercises. This makes it relevant also for students participating in mathematics circles and in mathematics olympiads. Each section contains several problems, which are not purely drill exercises, but are intended to introduce a sense of "play" in mathematics, and inculcate appreciation of the elegance and beauty of geometric results. There is an abundance of colour pictures illustrating results and their proofs. A section on hints and a further section on detailed solutions to all the exercises appear at the end of the book, making the book ideal also for self-study.

Scientists and other keen observers of the natural world sometimes make or write a statement pertaining to scientific activity that is destined to live on beyond the brief period of time for which it was intended. This book serves as a collection of these statements from great philosophers and thought–influencers of science, past and present. It allows the reader quickly to find relevant quotations or citations. Organized thematically and indexed alphabetically by author, this work makes readily available an unprecedented collection of approximately 18,000 quotations related to a broad range of scientific topics.

Basic Algebra and Geometry Made a Bit Easier: Concepts Explained In Plain English, Practice Exercises, Self-Tests, and Review

This is the fourth book in the Math Made a Bit Easier series by independent author and math tutor Larry Zafran. As the second "main" book of the series, it builds upon the first book which covered key topics in basic math. Before working with this book, it is absolutely essential to have completely mastered all of the material from the first book. Continuing the roadmap which began with the first book, this book covers the basics of the following topics of algebra and geometry: Expressions, equations, inequalities, exponents, factoring, the FOIL method, lines, angles, area, perimeter, volume, triangles, the Pythagorean Theorem, linear equations, and the Cartesian coordinate plane.Again, if the prerequisite material from the first book has not been fully learned, the student will almost certainly proclaim that this book and its material are "hard," and will continue to feel frustrated with math. There is no way to avoid learning math step-by-step at one's own pace. This book emphasizes concepts which commonly appear on standardized exams. While it does not go into great detail about any concept, it explains the material conversationally and "in plain English." Some practice exercises and self-tests are included. Mastery of these concepts will likely be sufficient for the student to achieve his/her math goals, but more advanced exams may require some knowledge of material presented in later books in the series.
