Sector of a circle []. A sector of a circle can be thought of as a pie piece. In the picture below, a sector of the circle is shaded yellow. To find the area of a sector, find the area of the whole circle and then multiply by the angle of the sector over degrees. This is an undergraduate textbook that reveals the intricacies of geometry.

The approach used is that a geometry is a space together with a set of transformations of that space (as argued by Klein in his Erlangen programme).

The authors explore various geometries: affine, projective, inversive, non-Euclidean and spherical. UNSOLVED PROBLEMS IN INTUITIVE GEOMETRY The problems which follow are among those being considered for inclusion in a book on “Ungeloste Probleme der anschauliche Geometrie,” now being written by H.
