  • (diff | hist) . . Geometry/Chapter 1‎; 23:55 . . (+2). .Sluffs (discuss | contribs)(Section 1.3 - Undefined Terms: changed word to "understanding" - I'm a bit puzzled why this whole section is called "Undefined Terms" - they are either a priori or a posteriori but all things are defined - it should be "Postulates or Common Notions")
  • (diff | hist) . . Geometry/Chapter 1‎; 23:48 . . (+151). .Sluffs (discuss | contribs)(Section 1.3 - Undefined Terms: adding Hume and his work On Human Nature - basically the questioning of axioms was a youthful Hume - the point he was illustrating was that the study of human nature may be approached from science)
  • (diff | hist) . . Geometry/Chapter 1‎; 23:22 . . (+24). .Sluffs (discuss | contribs)(Deductive Reasoning: adding "that are not parallel will intersect" to "it can be used to deduce that two different lines intersect in at most one point." - in the sense of extended without limit)
  • (diff | hist) . . m Geometry/Chapter 1‎; 23:15 . . (+6). .Sluffs (discuss | contribs)(Section 1.2 - Reasoning: Chicago Manual of Styleː spell non-technical numerals below one-hundred)
  • (diff | hist) . . Geometry/Chapter 1‎; 23:13 . . (-25). .Sluffs (discuss | contribs)(Section 1.2 - Reasoning: removed Wikipedia link to Baseball article - keep focus on geometry)
  • (diff | hist) . . Geometry/Chapter 1‎; 23:09 . . (-18). .Sluffs (discuss | contribs)(Section 1.1 - Introduction: tightened sentence - no need for the demonstrative pronoun "that" - I'm not sure if it is "his method" - many of the proofs were common knowledge - I thought he was the first to order them)
  • (diff | hist) . . m Geometry/Chapter 1‎; 23:01 . . (-2). .Sluffs (discuss | contribs)(Section 1.1 - Introduction: no need for speech marks - no emphasis needed)
  • (diff | hist) . . Geometry/Chapter 1‎; 22:59 . . (-2). .Sluffs (discuss | contribs)(Section 1.1 - Introduction: rewrote "In the book, Euclid started with some basic concepts. He built upon those concepts..." - "In this book Euclid provides methods using just a compass, ruler and a protractor to prove geometrical statements.")
  • (diff | hist) . . Geometry/Chapter 1‎; 22:38 . . (-4). .Sluffs (discuss | contribs)(Section 1.1 - Introduction: removed speech marks from "proof" - not needed)
  • (diff | hist) . . Geometry/Chapter 1‎; 22:37 . . (-29). .Sluffs (discuss | contribs)(Section 1.1 - Introduction: removing Wikipedia links - same reason as before)
  • (diff | hist) . . Geometry/Chapter 1‎; 22:28 . . (-25). .Sluffs (discuss | contribs)(Section 1.1 - Introduction: Removed speech marks on the first word of a paragraph - not needed - also there is no need to link to the Wikipedia article - this book can go way beyond an article)
  • (diff | hist) . . Geometry/Chapter 1‎; 22:22 . . (-2). .Sluffs (discuss | contribs)(Section 1.1 - Introduction: removed brackets - not needed - the sentence is fine - shouldn't how Eratosthenes measured the Earth be included - wasn't it quite a distance between the well and the other point)
  • (diff | hist) . . Geometry/Chapter 1‎; 22:12 . . (+5). .Sluffs (discuss | contribs)(Section 1.4 - Axioms/Postulates: rewrite - the paragraph "Undefined Terms" is very abstract - wouldn't it be better to go straight to the Axioms)
  • (diff | hist) . . Geometry/Chapter 2[review]; 00:58 . . (-1). .2602:30a:2cbe:8760:9dc6:f173:46cd:e96f (discuss)(Two-Column Proofs)
