Geometry with Coordinates, Student's Text, Part II, Unit 48. Revised Edition.
Allen, Frank B.; And Others
This is part two 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: coordinates in a plane; perpendicularity, parallelism, and coordinates in space; directed segments and vectors; polygons and polyhedrons; and circles and spheres. (MN)
