Symmetry, Shape, and Space by L.Christine Kinsey

Book Description

Symmetry, Shape, and Space uses the visual nature of geometry to involve readers in discovering mathematics. The text allows readers to study and analyze patterns for themselves, which in turn teaches creativity, as well as analytical and visualization skills. Varied content, activities, and examples lead readers into an investigative process and provide the experience of doing and discovering mathematics as mathematicians do. Exercises requiring readers to express their ideas in writing and to create drawings or physical models make math a hands-on experience. Assuming no mathematics beyond the high school level, Symmetry, Shape, and Space is the perfect introduction to mathematics, and it is designed so that each chapter is independent of the others, allowing great flexibility.

Geometry and Symmetry by L.Christine Kinsey Geometry and Symmetry, Hardback (June 2010)

* This new book helps learners gain an appreciation of geometry and its importance in the history and development of mathematics. * The material is presented in three parts: The first is devoted to Euclidean geometry. The second covers non-Euclidean geometry.

Symmetry, Shape, and Space with the Geometer's Sketchpad by L.Christine Kinsey Symmetry, Shape, and Space with the Geometer's Sketchpad, Paperback (August 2008)

This Student Lab Manual is to accompany Symmetry, Shape, and Space , which uses the visual nature of geometry to involve readers in discovering mathematics. The text allows readers to study and analyze patterns for themselves, which in turn teaches creativity, as well as analytical and visualization skills.

Topology of Surfaces by L.Christine Kinsey Topology of Surfaces, Hardback (September 1997)

Aims to provide undergraduates with an understanding of geometric topology. This book covers topics, which include a sampling from point-set, geometric, and algebraic topology. It presumes a basic knowledge of linear algebra, and includes exercises as well as an appendix that provides a brief survey of the necessary background of group theory.
