The day has finally arrived, the first lecture of the MMC 2008-2009 season!  We are very pleased to have Richard Rusczyk join us from San Diego.  Richard is the author of many books used by accomplished problem solvers for individual study or as the backbone of a classroom course.  One example is his new book Introduction to Algebra.

Introduction to Algebra

Learn the basics of algebra from former USA Mathematical Olympiad winner and Art of Problem Solving founder Richard Rusczyk.

Our September 20th, 2008 speaker, Richard Rusczyk, is the author of several books designed to help teenage problem solvers. Introduction to Geometry is an excellent text that many of our Math Circle participants have used, often along with the Introduction to Geometry course at Art of Problem Solving.

Learn the fundamentals of geometry from former USA Mathematical Olympiad winner Richard Rusczyk. Topics covered in the book include similar triangles, congruent triangles, quadrilaterals, polygons, circles, funky areas, power of a point, three-dimensional geometry, transformations, and much more.

…the text is structured to inspire the reader to explore and develop new ideas. Each section starts with problems, so the student has a chance to solve them without help before proceeding. The text then includes solutions to these problems, through which geometric techniques are taught. Important facts and powerful problem solving approaches are highlighted throughout the text. In addition to the instructional material, the book contains over 900 problems. The solutions manual contains full solutions to all of the problems, not just answers.
