Elementary College Geometry
by Henry Africk
Publisher: CUNY Academic Works 2013
Number of pages: 376
This text is intended for a brief introductory course in plane geometry. It covers the topics from elementary geometry that are most likely to be required for more advanced mathematics courses. The only prerequisite is a semester of algebra. The emphasis is on applying basic geometric principles to the numerical solution of problems. For this purpose the number of theorems and definitions is kept small.

The subject-matter of the book is that of the first three books of the Elements, but there is a great departure as regards the method. As the pupil proceeds, he is helped to build up ideas in the same way as in the elements of physics and chemistry.

Introduction to geometry, the straight line, circle, proportional lines and similar polygons, areas of polygons, regular polygons and circles. The book includes exercises: theorems, problems of construction, loci, and problems of computation.
This book is intended for use by a parent and a child. It is recommended that the parent have some familiarity with geometry, but this is not necessary. The parent can simply read the chapter before teaching the child and then learn it together.
