Geometry Revisited is much more elementary, aimed at high-school teachers and bright high-school students or college frosh.

The always original developments use very simple tools theorems of Ceva and Menelaos and soon proceed to higher configurations theorems of Pascal and Brianchon on the circle. The books are excellent. Bg wrote in his AMS Math Review The tenor of the translation of Coxeter’s beautiful tome Geometry revisited [Random House, New York, ] is in keeping with the objectives of the Klett Textbooks in Mathematics series which are intended to convey to freshmen and teachers of mathematicsvia interesting representationsan approach to different aspects of mathematics, especially to geometry, that is kept as concrete as possible and so is applicable in schools.
If you are planning to self study and are just beginning geometry, I would recommend neither at this stage. Greitzer Snippet view – If you are talking about ” Introduction to Geometry ” by Coxeter and ” Geometry Revisited ” by Coxeter and Greitzer, the consensus seems to be that both of them are pretty advanced, but “Introduction to Geometry” is significantly more so, while “Geometry Revisited” is closer to something ‘right after high school geometry class,’ so I guess you should start with the latter assuming you do have some geometry knowledge already.

An advantage in this recruiting endeavor is the high degree of visualizability of geometry, the easy comprehensibility of its problems and interesting theorems, and the challenge emanating from these problems to occupy oneself with their solutions. Greitzer Mathematical Association of America- Mathematics – pages 2 Rrevisited Among the many beautiful and nontrivial theorems in geometry found in Geometry Revisited are the theorems of Ceva, Menelaus, Pappus, Desargues, Pascal, and Brianchon.
Among the many beautiful and nontrivial theorems in geometry found here are the theorems of Ceva, Menelaus, Pappus, Desargues, Pascal, and Brianchon.
User Review – Flag as inappropriate the book is very good It generally covers almost all the important results in Euclidean Geometry which are used mostly to prove a variety of problems The book also has good problems related on that particular book.
Visiting Elementary Geometry from the viewpoint of transformations. Mathematical Association of America Online publication date: For example, the whole “world” of computational geometry came on the scene after Coexeter’s book.
Geometry RevisitedVolume 19 H. Many fascinating properties of circles, triangles, quadrilaterals, and conics are developed. Many historical remarks are woven into the text. In all this book should be recommended by every maths teacher to their students to enjoy the flavour of this subject.
