GEOMETRY: Covers Geometry basics: points and lines, line segments, rays, planes, and lines and points in planes. Students study definitions of angles, degrees, and measuring the size of angles. They are taught to classify angles by size and relation and how to bisect an angle. Students study parallelograms, properties of a trapezoid, ration and proportions, and the Pythagorean Theorem. Ninth grade students know, derive, and solve problems involving perimeter, circumference, area, volume, lateral area and surface area of common geometric features. Students know the definitions of basic trigonometric functions defined by the angles of a right triangle. They also know and are able to use elementary relationships between functions.

Another uncluttered, freshlooking math course from author Christy Walters. Again, I love that the book is addressed to the student, has plenty of workspace for problemsolving, and uses a nononsense approach. There is nothing "cute" here; just a direct, fronton approach to learning math. If you are not familiar with the Algebra courses, PLEASE READ description of Algebra: A Fresh Approach, as all of the same applies here. If you have used the Algebra I course above, you will equally enjoy Geometry.
In the Geometry book, I like that she begins with a mini logic course (much like Jacobs). Instead of waiting until introducing geometric theorems to have the student begin doing proofs, she immediately introduces them in the context of what the student already knows (using algebraic principles). In this way, proofs are not a "new" thing used to prove just geometry theorems, but are familiar to the student as an extension and organization of logical thought. Although nonEuclidean geometry is an interesting topic in the Jacobs book, your mathreluctant student will appreciate not having to deal with such abstract concepts here. For a more complete idea of the scope and sequence of this course (and other geometry courses, for comparison), please visit our website to view the table of contents.
The thirteen chapters are broken into parts (lessons) with direct instruction followed by problems. Again, I like the selfdiscovery incorporated into the exercises as well as the shortanswer questions, which require the student to put principles into words. The last part of each chapter is a mixed review including material from previous sections and chapters of the book. While the book is thick (730 pages before the answers to oddproblems section), the larger typeset font is easy on the eye and the less bulky text per page helps the instruction seem less intimidating and overwhelming. Since this book is intended for use between Algebra I and Algebra II, there is an Appendix devoted to a review of algebraic concepts. This is a great minirefresher course and I am glad to see it all in one place at the end of the book rather than parceled out in the middle of the geometry course. I found the latter approach to be unnecessarily distracting in the Jacobs book.
Another notable feature of this series is the ability to work directly in the book or to photocopy the student problem pages rather than recopying the problems and working on a separate sheet of paper. In the geometry course, this goes a step further in the inclusion of blank coordinate graphs on problems that require them.
I really like this math series and would recommend it to any student, but particularly for children who seem confused by other math courses and for children who are working gradelevels ahead. It is a good text for the easilydistracted and mathphobic student as well – who needs to see things organized clearly and appreciates the lesscluttered feel of the text. If your child has had difficulty using other math programs, don't throw in the towel until you've tried "A Fresh Approach".

While able to be used with any geometry program, it is designed specifically for use with Discovering Geometry and Jacob's Geometry. It's very easy to make just about anything in Sketchpad: you can simply highlight points and make circles about them, draw line, bisect line and angles, and measure them with only a click of the button. You can type on your sketch, name points, lines, and angles, plot graphs and prove proofs. You can also import and transform images. One of the coolest things (my brother got a kick out of this) is that you can even do limited animation! Very simple to use, and an excellent aid for any geometry student, I highly recommend getting into it. Please note that it is a downloadable application, not a CDROM, so you will need internet access to enter the code enclosed and download the program. System requirements: Windows XP or later, Mac OS 10.4 or later (PowerPCbased system) 300 MB free disk space, internet access. ~ Mark

Geometry isn't treated with the intensity in middle school, in many cases, for high school success in the subject. This book follows the National Math Standards and presents an introduction to the basics of geometry. Students won't just learn the properties of geometry, but will learn the reasoning behind the properties and learn the basics of geometric proofs and coordinate geometry. A glossary is included in this 256page book that can be used as a text in junior high and it is reproducible for family or classroom use.

Leroy Shrode has combined a detailed geometry textbook with what would normally be a companion workbook so that all the materials are in one place. A new paradigm to me, the answer key to the chapters and unit tests are located at the very front of the book instead of the end  I don't know why  and perforated for easy removal. Shrode states that the real purpose of this book is to teach the student how to think logically rather than mastering geometry. That said, he packs a whole lot of geometry in the 201 pages of text/workbook and 36 pages of unit tests. I remember geometry fondly from my high school days, especially since it solidified my interest in mathematics in general. I'm a very visual person, and the concepts of geometry brought that to bear in my studies like none of my previous math classes could. Shrode's presentation of the subject is very reminiscent of my experiences way back when, especially in the way he helps the student with some prompting at the beginning to nudge them in the right direction without doing all of the work for them. This is definitely not a "fun" book, nor is it colorful by any stretch of the imagination (the only thing I think it lacks), yet it moves the student fairly quickly but thoroughly through the concepts. A good book for the selfdisciplined student with an interest in math. ~ Tom
