Geometric algebra for the High School Program

  • Howard Levi


Plane affine geometry is developed from four axioms, up to the construction of a field (in general non-commutative), introduction of coordinates and derivation of equations for lines. The development is intended to be intelligible and rewarding to better high school students.
