Elements of Mathematics, Book O: Intuitive Background. Chapter 11, Geometry: Incidence and Isometries.
Exner, Robert; And Others
The sixteen chapters of this book provide the core material for the Elements of ERIC/SMEAC, The Ohio State University, 400 Lincoln Tower, Columbus, Ohio 43210 (on loan) strong verbal abilities. The sequence is based on a functional-relational approach to mathematics teaching, and emphasizes teaching by analysis of real-life situations. This text is intended to provide students with a general background in the analytical methods of mathematics and practice in reasoning with mathematical objects; other texts (Books 1-12) prepared for use with book O explore particular areas in depth. In this chapter, geometry is studied from a transformational point of view; the operational system defined by composition of transformations is developed. Symmetries of planar and spatial objects are discussed, and the notions of area and volume developed. (SD)
