Uses a simplified organization that divides content into relatively short, homogeneous chapters and that follows the organization of the author's Descriptive Geometry Worksheets, Series A and B, in which new principles are introduced in order of need as well as of difficulty. Pg.___
Contains numerous pictorial projects designed to reinforce related orthographic principles, and to help students develop their depth perception and visualization ability — which are essential to creative design. Pg.___
Presents problems in layout form exactly as they are to be reproduced on the drawing paper. Pg.___
Includes computer graphic problems and projects that use both BASIC and FORTRAN — and that may be solved on both mainframe and personal computers. Pg.___
Projects may be solved directly in the text. Pg.___
Provides carefully delineated solutions in an appendix. Pg.___
In this book the author has fulfilled the need for a descriptive geometry textbook in which the fundamentals are presented in the same pedagogically sound units of work, as they are usually introduced in daily presentation.
