Based on the premise that in order to write proofs, one needs to read finished proofs as well as study both their logic and grammar, Revolutions in Geometry depicts how to write basic proofs in various fields of geometry. This accessible text for junior and senior undergraduates explains the general development of geometry throughout time, discusses the involvement of its major contributors, and places the proofs into the context of geometry's history to illustrate how crucial proof writing is to the job of a mathematician.

Highlights from the history of geometry are intertwined with explanations on how to read and write proofs

This is the first book to present the works of Euclid and Hilbert in addition to other geometers in chronological order, all in an effort to show how the subject matter developed over time

Hints and both partial and complete solutions are included at the end of the book as an aid for selected exercises

An important contribution to the teaching of geometry, this book proves that learning to read and write proofs is a crucial aspect of the subject

An Instructor's Solutions Manual is available upon request to the Wiley editorial department
