If you haven’t met Euclid, well, it’s a little late to now.
But, he was a mathematic genius who not only walked circles around us with geometry, he taught the world how to properly do a proof. The series of books known as Euclid’s Elements are amazing evidence of this, and the “Video Safari of Euclid’s Elements” will drive deeply into the mathematical wild to capture each one. Bring sunscreen, bug spray, a safari hat, and plenty of water.

I may veer off the path in explaining a proposition. That’s on me, not Euclid, Heath, Densmore, or Green Lion Press. 🙂
The geometric drawing tool I use to guide us as we visit each proposition is GeoGebra.
