Geometry with Coordinates, Student's Text, Part I, Unit 47. Revised Edition.
Allen, Frank B.; And Others
This is part one of a two-part SMSG geometry text for high school students. One of the goals of the text is the development of analytic geometry hand-in-hand with synthetic geometry. The authors emphasize that both are deductive systems and that it is useful to have more than one mode of attack in solving problems. The text begins the development of geometry synthetically and teaches the method of synthetic proof, then leads quickly to the use of coordinate systems in the remainder of the work. Chapter topics include: introduction to formal geometry; sets, points, lines, and planes; distance and coordinate systems; angles; congruence; parallelism; and similarity. (MN)
