82. Non-Euclidean Geometry
Euclidean geometry assumes that there is a unique parallel line passing through a specific point; any other line will cross the original line at some point.
Non-Euclidean Geometry
The idea of geometry was developed by Euclid around 300 BC, when he wrote his famous book about geometry, called The Elements . In the book, he starts with 5 main postulates, or assumptions, and from these, he derives all of the other theorems of geometry. The postulates are as follows: Illustration of Fifth Postulate
  • Given two points, there is a straight line that joins them.
  • A straight line segment can be prolonged indefinitely.
  • A circle can be constructed when a point for its centre and a distance for its radius are given.
  • All right angles are equal.
  • If a straight line falling on two straight lines makes the interior angles on the same side less than two right angles, the two straight lines, if produced indefinitely, will meet on that side on which the angles are less than the two right angles. [1] The fifth postulate is clearly more complicated than the other four, and, over the years, many mathematicians were upset by this fact, believing that the fifth postulate should, in some way, be possible to derive from the first four. However, in attempting to do this, they just ended up coming up with several equivalent postulates. A few are as follows:
  • Given a line and a point not on the line, it is possible to draw exactly one line through the given point parallel to the line.

    Thank you. Lori D. 05-06-2008, 12:05 PM Found a used 2nd edition for $50. There is a newer 3rd edition out, as well. Here's a link to a recent thread in which the differences between the 2nd and 3rd editions are discussed:
    Jacobs is vey gentle, and pretty much self-teaching. It is proof-based rather than focused on area, circles, etc. Jacobs is Euclidean geometry, with one chapter on non-Euclidean (just a sort of overview of other types of geometry). I believe the standard for high school geometry is Euclidean, with non-Euclidean and other types of geometry being college level courses for math and science fields.
    - Math U See has a geometry program (not proof based), that deals with planes, angles, area, volume, solids, etc. Has a teaching DVD, with instruction/explanation for each lesson.

    86. Geometry Tutorial
    In order to enroll in the second year of the Great Books Tutorial, all students must take my Euclidean Geometry course. The course requires 510 hours a week of preparation
    Tutorial This tutorial covers the Geometry in Euclid's Elements Euclid 's famous text was "the" book for the study of Geometry until the 19th century. It has been studied by a host of intellectual greats. His systematic approach to Geometry is not a only a tremendous study in how to think and reason, but it became the paradigm that later philosophers would attempt to follow in setting up their own systems of thought. There is really no other mathematical text that rivals its impact on intellectual history. This tutorial is highly recommended not only for its tremendous historical value, but also as a fine addition to the Geometry-starved Saxon program. The only fault I see with the Saxon programs is its meager treatment of Geometric proofs. Along with Saxon, most modern math texts are downplaying Geometric proofs because they are teaching to the SAT and it does not require proofs. But after going through the magnificent proofs of Euclid , you will see why his work is truly a mathematical classic.

    Euclid is thought to have been so influential on that brand of geometry that is called, Euclidean Geometry. Euclidean Geometry, even today,
    Euclid lid organized the teachings of Pythagoras, his disciples and other Greek thinkers, into his great work, The Elements . In fact, this book is a synthesis of past teachings. Euclid, thought to be a student of Plato's disciples, organized the epic, Elements, from centuries of Greek geometry, and refined lots of it. Plato, the founder of a major academy in Athens, emphasized geometry in his teachings. The Elements is one of the most widely read books ever, and his approach has dominated mathematics for the last two millenniums. I have traveled back in time to 370 B.C. to interview Euclid right before his death: Q: When and where were you born? A: I was born in 300 B.C. in Greece. Q: What turned you on the most about geometry? A: What turned me on the most about mathematics in general was much the same as what turns people on to music and the artsthere was a beauty and mystery to it. What turned me on to geometry was its power to expand our knowledge of the world and how things work. Q: How did you compile The Elements A: I synthesized this work out of hundreds of years of the teachings of mathematicians.

    Welcome to the exciting world of hyperbolic geometry! Hyperbolic geometry is one of the most important examples of a "non-Euclidean" geometry, with far reaching applications in math and science, including special relativity. Moreover, by approaching hyperbolic geometry through analogies and models, even the novice can enjoy the elegance and surprising intricacy of a deep mathematical theory. This exhibit presents an introduction to hyperbolic geometry with the assistance of graphics, animations and interactive applications. Enjoy the exhibit!
    Euclidean Geometry
    • Historically, hyperbolic geometry was discovered as a consequence of questions about the parallel postulate . Appearing in Euclid's original treatise, the parallel postulate provoked two millenia of mathematical investigation about the nature of logic, proof, and geometry.
    • Once non-Euclidean geometries became known, it became clear that a good way to understand geometry is to consider its isometries , or "rigid motions".

    Euclidean geometry
    Euclidean geometry is a mathematical system attributed to the Greek mathematician Euclid of Alexandria. Euclid's text Elements is the earliest known systematic discussion of geometry. It has been one of the most influential books in history, as much for its method as for its mathematical content. The method consists of assuming a small set of intuitively appealing axioms, and then proving many other propositions (theorems) from those axioms. Although many of Euclid's results had been stated by earlier Greek mathematicians, Euclid was the first to show how these propositions could be fit together into a comprehensive deductive and logical system.
    The Elements begin with plane geometry, still taught in secondary school as the first axiomatic system and the first examples of formal proof. The Elements goes on to the solid geometry of three dimensions, and Euclidean geometry was subsequently extended to any finite number of dimensions. Much of the Elements states results of what is now called number theory, proved using geometrical methods.
    For over two thousand years, the adjective "Euclidean" was unnecessary because no other sort of geometry had been conceived. Euclid's axioms seemed so intuitively obvious that any theorem proved from them was deemed true in an absolute sense. Today, however, many other self-consistent non-Euclidean geometries are known, the first ones having been discovered in the early 19th century. It also is no longer taken for granted that Euclidean geometry describes physical space. An implication of Einstein's theory of general relativity is that Euclidean geometry is a good approximation to the properties of physical space only if the gravitational field is not too strong.

    How To Use Euclidean Geometry
  • On a piece of paper, design a table with four legs. This is really a very simple exercise that illustrates several practical applications of Euclidean geometry. Make the tabletop square. (Actually, this is not mandatory, but most of us today are used to square or rectangular-shaped tabletops, windows, picture frames or sheets of paper.) To make certain that a particular area is square, all one has to do is make sure each corner registers at exactly 90 degrees. However, with an understanding of Euclidean Geometry and the properties of right triangles, it is possible to determine if our four-sided shape is square without measuring each and every corner. If two corners are square, then the whole figure is square. Also, it is true that if both diagonal measurements are square, then the whole object is also square. This last geometric property is an invaluable way for builders and home-improvement workers to doublecheck their handiwork. Just by building a table, we can see this aspect of Euclidean geometry applied to our daily lives.

    Geometry - Euclidian Geometry vs regular geometry
    Expert: Vishwas K Hajirnis - 3/9/2006 Question Whats the difference Answer I assume by regular geometry you mean the geometry that is taught in schools. If this is so then the regular geometry is same as Euclidean geometry. Euclidean geometry is a mathematical system developed by a mathematician named Euclid. Euclid wrote a text book called 'Elements', which was the first complete and systematic discussion of geometry. Here he proposed a method of assuming a small set of intuitively appealing axioms, and then proving theorems from them by well-defined logical rules. Many of Euclid's results had been given by earlier Greek mathematicians, but Euclid was the first to show how they could be fitted together in a comprehensive logical system. For about two thousand years geometry was synonymous with Euclidean geomtry. Among Euclid's postulates, the 5th postulate states that:
