A Course In Modern Geometries
This book is the worst book that my professor has ever chose for my math class. There follows a new introduction to symmetry and hands-on explorations of isometries that precedes an extensive analytic treatment of similarities and affinities.
Olaf College in Minnesota. Naive Lie Theory John Stillwell.
The new Chapter 5 uses a descriptive and exploratory approach to introduce chaos theory and fractal geometry, stressing the self-similarity of fractals and their generation by transformations from Chapter 3.

Parallel versions of these explorations are available for “Cabri Geometry” and “Geometer’s Sketchpad”. Would you like to tell us about a lower price? A new geometriew section explores isometries of space.
Chapter 1 presents several finite geometries in an axiomatic framework. Then as an exercise readers are asked to show that if segment PQ is congruent to segment P’Q’, then the measures of the line segments d P,Q and d P’,Q’ are equal. For the remainder of Chapter 2, the author abandons any axiomatic framework at all and just proves various theorems about Eucilidean and hyperbolic geometry.
To be honest, I think she is doing nothing at all. Pages contain marginal notes, underlining, and or highlighting.
