This self-contained ebook makes a speciality of Tarski’s early contributions to geometry and arithmetic schooling, together with the well-known Banach–Tarski paradoxical decomposition of a sphere in addition to high-school mathematical themes and pedagogy. those issues are major because Tarski’s later examine on geometry and its foundations stemmed partly from his early employment as a high-school arithmetic instructor and teacher-trainer.
