This unique textbook combines traditional geometry presents a contemporary approach that is grounded in real-world applications. It balances the deductive approach with discovery learning, introduces axiomatic, Euclidean and non-Euclidean, and transformational geometry. The text integrates applications and examples throughout. The Third Edition offers many updates, including expaning on historical notes, Geometry and Its Applications is a significant text for any college or university that focuses on geometry's usefulness in other disciplines. It is especially appropriate for engineering and science majors, as well as future mathematics teachers.
