ABOUT THE BOOK:


Elementary Geometry by Hall & Stevens is the introduction of basic geometrical shapes. The book illustrates fundamental geometrical constructions and their various properties. It takes students in a logical way to learn the different shapes and the ways they are drawn.
Thereafter, the book discusses various axioms and definitions of geometry to explain the concepts thoroughly. The science students will find the book very useful in developing a strong foundation in eometry that will help them in other subjects as well.


ABOUT THE AUTHOR(S):



H S Hall was a brilliant scholar of mathematics. He completed his MA and was formerly a scholar of Christ’s college, Cambridge, U.K. In addition, he was also head of the military side, Clifton college in United Kingdom. He wrote many books on different aspects of mathematics to contribute to the spread of mathematical knowledge and skills among students of United Kingdom and also of the larger world.



F H Stevens had a master’s degree and was honoured with the position of Assistant Master of the military and engineering side at Clifton college in the United Kingdom. In co-authorship with H S Hall, he wrote this book to explain elementary geometry that finds wide applications in science and engineering education.
