### Abstract:

This introductory text is designed to help undergraduate students develop a solid foundation in geometry. Early chapters progress slowly, cultivating the necessary understanding and self-confidence for the more rapid development that follows. The extensive treatment can be easily adapted to accommodate shorter courses. Starting with the language of mathematics as expressed in the algebra of logic and sets, the text covers geometric sets of points, separation and angles, triangles, parallel lines, similarity, polygons and area, circles, space geometry, and coordinate geometry. Each chapter includes a problem set arranged in order of increasing difficulty as well as review exercises and annotated references suggesting sources for further study. In addition to three helpful Appendixes, the book concludes with answers and hints for selected problems.
