Elements of Mathematics, Book 9: Linear Algebra and Geometry with Trigonometry.
Exner, Robert; And Others
One of 12 books developed for use with the core material (Book O) of the Elements of Mathematics Program, this text covers material well beyond the scope of the usual secondary mathematics sequences. These materials are designed for highly motivated students with strong verbal abilities; mathematical theories and ideas are developed through problem situations and explanatory materials. In this volume, vector spaces and linear transformations, affine spaces and affine transformations, and inner product spaces are presented. Euclidean geometry is then considered as affine space over the reals (with inner product); the angles, congruence, the conics, and other topics are discussed from this point of view. Trigonometry is then introduced with both an intuitive approach and a more rigorous approach. (SD)
