Reviews - What do customers think about Symmetry, Shape and Space?

fails to help  Sep 10, 2007
Sorry, any text book without a glossary fails its primary goal of making its information accessible.
Good Book  Feb 8, 2007
The book does a good job of reintroducing basic geometry to the more remedial college mathematician. It also does a fine job of introducing higher order geometry. However, the best quality of the book is its ever present agenda to relate geometry to real life situations. This helped to give me a reason to study geometry for practical purposes. Too bad my professor is a douchebag.
A Geometrical Journey  Dec 3, 2005
This book will well serve any student who wants an interesting, visual approach to mathematics. A plethora of topics are explored including constructions, tessalations, other dimensions-the fourth dimension, polyhedra, three-dimensional symmetry, spiral growth, shape, graph theory, and topology.
All topics are presented, for the most part, in an intuitive, visual manner making it much easier for the average reader to grasp the concepts being presented. Students are required to analyze patterns thereby enhancing their analytical and visualization skills. Each chapter is presented in a stand alone manner. The book is well written and replete with numerous high quality drawings. The text would well serve
any instructor who is presenting a course for liberal arts students, a course in mathematics for teachers, or an enrichment course for high school students. The book would also provide an excellent, self-study guide for high school students who are interested in a gentle guide to mathematics outside the standard high school: algebra, plane geometry, and pre-calculus curriculum. An excellent and extensive biography is provided for the reader who wants to delve deeper into any of the many topics covered in the text. Overall, an excellent introductory text to the many facets of geometry.
