Geometry

This page will be totally devoted to the study of classical geometry, and more.

Classical Euclidean Geometry

The Greeks are thought of as being among the first cultures to systematically organize and record all the known results of the ancient world concerning geometric relationships. The “magnum opus” was recorded — it is thought — by Euclid in what is called “The Elements.” You can find an interesting review of that here:

Elements

In this course, we will be exploring the basics of an introductory class on elementary high school geometry.

These excerpts from Art of Problem Solving’s “Volume 1: the Basics” provide an extremely good rapid overview of circles and triangles.

Intro to Triangles 1

Intro to Triangles 2

Intro to Triangles 3

Here are the links to a classic Euclidean Geometry text which I have been using for examples. It is broken up into several chapters because of the size of the PDF files.
