# ON THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN PLANE AND SOLID GEOMETRY

@article{Arana2012ONTR, title={ON THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN PLANE AND SOLID GEOMETRY}, author={Andrew P. Arana and Paolo Mancosu}, journal={The Review of Symbolic Logic}, year={2012}, volume={5}, pages={294 - 353} }

Traditional geometry concerns itself with planimetric and stereometric considerations, which are at the root of the division between plane and solid geometry. To raise the issue of the relation between these two areas brings with it a host of different problems that pertain to mathematical practice, epistemology, semantics, ontology, methodology, and logic. In addition, issues of psychology and pedagogy are also important here. To our knowledge there is no single contribution that studies in…

The main goal is to follow the transition between 2D and 3D representations of physical objects and also to observe how and when such a transition happens in students’ thinking.

Mario Pieri’s View of the Symbiotic Relationship between the Foundations and the Teaching of Elementary Geometry in the Context of the Early Twentieth Century Proposals for Pedagogical Reform

Bridging the gap between analytic and synthetic geometry: Hilbert’s axiomatic approach

- MathematicsSynthese
- 2015

It is argued that Hilbert not only sought to show that geometry could be considered a pure mathematical theory, once it was presented as a formal axiomatic system; he also aimed at showing that in the construction of such an axIomatic system one could proceed purely geometrically, avoiding concept formations borrowed from other mathematical disciplines.

From Geometry to Algebra

DE ZOLT’S POSTULATE: AN ABSTRACT APPROACH

- Computer ScienceThe Review of Symbolic Logic

An abstract version of De Zolt’s postulate, “If a polygon is divided into polygonal parts in any given way, then the union of all but one of these parts is not equivalent to the given polygon” is formulated and derived from some selected principles for magnitudes.
