For courses in Geometry or Geometry for Future Teachers. nbsp;nbsp; This popular book has four main goals: 1. to help students become better problem solvers, especially in solving common application problems involving geometry; 2. to help students learn many properties of geometric figures, to verify them using proofs, and to use them to solve applied problems; 3. to expose students to the axiomatic method of synthetic Euclidean geometry at an appropriate level of sophistication; and 4. to provide students with other methods for solving problems in geometry, namely using coordinate geometry and transformation geometry. Beginning with informal experiences, the book gradually moves toward more formal proofs, and includes special topics sections.

Gary Musser is Professor Emeritus of Mathematics at Oregon State University. Professor Musser has published 40 papers in many journals, including the PACIFIC JOURNAL OF MATHEMATICS, CANADIAN JOURNAL OF MATHEMATICS, THE MATHEMATICS ASSOCIATION OF AMERICA MONTHLY, the NCTM's THE MATEMATICAL TEACHER, the NCTM's THE ARITHMETIC TEACHER, SCHOOL SCIENCE AND MATHEMATICS, THE OREGON MATHEMATICS TEACHER, and THE COMPUTING TEACHER. In addition, he is a coauthor of two other college mathematics books: COLLEGE GEOMETRY: A PROBLEM-SOLVING APPROACH WITH APPLICATIONS and MATHEMATICS FOR ELEMENTARY TEACHERS. He also coauthored the K-8 series MATHEMATICS IN ACTION. He has given more than 65 invited lectures/workshops at a variety of conferences, including NCTM and MAA conferences, and was awarded 15 federal, state, and local grants to improve the teaching of mathematics. While Professor Musser was at OSU, he was awarded the university's prestigious College of Science Carter Award for Teaching.
