Gem #1: Euclid’s Elements

When I was a student, I was lucky enough to study in a school which had a very good library of books related to mathematics and mathematics education. Nowadays, you can study many of the great classical texts online. In 2009, I am going to share with you several gems that I have found online. In my quest for these texts on mathematics/mathematics education, a natural first stop is with one of the greatest mathematical texts of all times: The Elements, by Euclid.

Here is the text:
Euclid Elements

You can also download (or read online) this great book in Google Books. See these two links for two versions of the text.

Happy new year, and happy reading!
