An introduction to Rational Trigonometry and Universal Geometry: simpler and more powerful for calculations, easier to learn, more general, and a richer theory of Euclidean geometry leading to many new discoveries. Also the basis for Universal Hyperbolic Geometry. This series is the first one on my channel, and in some sense the motivation for a lot of the direction of the future of mathematics, in my opinion.

With rational trigonometry, we learn that we can do lots of things algebraically that formerly required transcendental functions and irrationalities. Not only liberating, this is also empowering, as a lot of calculations run now faster and more smoothly. And all of metrical geometry gets recast in a much more elegant and general framework.
