Gems of Geometry

In line with a chain of lectures for grownup scholars, this energetic and wonderful booklet proves that, faraway from being a dusty, uninteresting topic, geometry is actually packed with attractiveness and fascination. The author's infectious enthusiasm is positioned to take advantage of in explaining some of the key ideas within the box, beginning with the Golden quantity and taking the reader on a geometric trip through Shapes and Solids, in the course of the Fourth size, completing with Einstein's Theories of Relativity.

Pi: A Source Book

Example text

The domain of f is then (−∞, −2] ∪ [2, ∞). On the other hand, odd roots are defined for both positive and negative values. Consequently, the domain of g is the entire real line, (−∞, ∞).  We often find it useful to label intercepts and other significant points on a graph. Finding these points typically involves solving equations. A solution of the equation f (x) = 0 is called a zero of the function f or a root of the equation f (x) = 0. Notice that a zero of the function f corresponds to an x-intercept of the graph of y = f (x).

Y The functions with which you are probably most familiar are polynomials. These are the simplest functions to work with because they are defined entirely in terms of arithmetic. 19b Curve passes vertical line test where a0 , a1 , a2 , . . , an are real numbers (the coefficients of the polynomial) with an = 0 and n ≥ 0 is an integer (the degree of the polynomial). cls ..
