KIRKUS REVIEW

Continuing to breathe life into what many consider a hopelessly dull subject, this popular team explores that special realm of mathematics minus numbers. Systems evolved from lines, angles, shapes, codes and graphs have been as beneficial to man as those which are dependent on numbers. The relationship of lines and angles, curves in conic sections, shapes in polygons, intervals in music, bars in graphs demonstrates the basic contention of this little volume -- that ""mathematics is a special way of thinking"". Geometry is likely to be much more meaningful to young people after a guided tour with Bendick and Levin.
