 Summary
 This booklet, Mistakes in Geometric Proofs, presents examples of faulty geometric proofs, some of which illustrate mistakes in reasoning that a student might make, while others are classic sophisms. Chapters 1 and 3 present these faulty proofs, and then Chapters 2 and 4 give comprehensive analyses of the mistakes. A background of high school geometry is presupposed, with trigonometry needed for some details
