The proofs for multiplying of s line segments and square root of a line segment is fun to work out (from page 5), and is a mind blower to even try taking the square root of a line segment. Thank you, Northeastern University!

This is Rene Descartes starting point including finding roots of sqaree roots. That sounds like a great book.

This is Rene Descartes starting point including finding roots of sqaree roots. The Greeks derived conics from trying to solve the three Delian problems - trisecting an angle, duplicating a cube, and squaring the circle. They came up with various curves and studied them to a certain extent. Rene Descartes solves and goes far beyond what the Greeks did there. His invention of analytic geometry evolved out of solving these problems. Reading this, and having read Galileo's "Two new Systems" book, there was plenty more that the Greeks could have done geometrically; but, they did not.

Descartes was the first to classify curves systematically and to demonstrate algebraic solution of geometric curves. His geometric interpretation of negative quantities led to later concepts of continuity and the theory of function

Descartes was the first to classify curves systematically and to demonstrate algebraic solution of geometric curves. His geometric interpretation of negative quantities led to later concepts of continuity and the theory of function. The third book contains important contributions to the theory of equations.

Descartes’ Geometry is a short book, originally appended to his famous Discourse on Method (the book in which he first proclaimed his momentous cogito, ergo sum ), along with his Dioptrics and Meteorology. These three works were meant to showcase the success that Descartes had with his new way of thinking. René Descartes, also known as Renatus Cartesius (Latinized form), was a highly influential French philosopher, mathematician, scientist, and writer.
