Excerpt from The Elements of Plane Geometry

The Second Part of the Elements of Plane Geometry, now submitted to the Public, has been prepared on the same lines as the First Part issued two years ago. Books III., IV., V., of the "Syllabus of Plane Geometry" have been revised, Demonstrations of the Propositions supplied, and suitable Exercises inserted.

The two parts contain the portion of Plane Geometry treated of in Euclid, Books I. to VI., with some additional matter, and afford a sufficient course for School Teaching. It will probably be found in most cases advantageous to postpone the study of Part II. of Book IV. until after a first reading of Book V.

The Association hopes shortly to publish 'Syllabuses of Elementary Solid Geometry, and Geometrical Conic Sections, and probably also of Higher Geometry, indicating courses of study in these Subjects suitable for school purposes.
