Geometry and Its Applications 2nd Edition, Walter Meyer

Geometry and Its Applications 2nd Edition PDF Download Ebook. Walter A. Meyer combines traditional geometry with current ideas to present a modern approach that is grounded in real-world applications. It balances the deductive approach with discovery learning, and introduces axiomatic, Euclidean geometry, non-Euclidean geometry, and transformational geometry.

The text integrates applications and examples throughout and includes historical notes in many chapters. It is a significant text for any college or university that focuses on geometry's usefulness in other disciplines. It is especially appropriate for engineering and science majors, as well as future mathematics teachers.

The author's emphasis on applications sets this proposed text apart from the standard ones. His examples make the point that geometry plays a vital role in the modern world. A unique blend of modern applications and theory is presented with excellent balance of mathematical rigor and informal style. CD-ROM (included) offers courseware for use with The Geometer's Sketchpad, polyhedra and planar maps.

This text offers balance between deductive geometry and coordinate geometry using vectors with over 700 exercises with complete solutions available. Real strengths of the text include the applications, the treatment of symmetry, and the attention to isometrics. The style is conversational and the approaches to problems are sensible. I appreciate the large number of problems. Walter Meyer is experienced in employing geometry as an industrial researcher and developer and has researched and taught geometry for nearly thirty years. The National Science Foundation, COMAP, and the Sloan Foundation have supported his work.
