While able to be used with any geometry program, it is designed specifically for use with Discovering Geometry and Jacobs 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. For activation go to http://sketchpad.keycurriculum.com/, click the pink button that says “Review License to Download”. Once you click that button, you need to accept” the agreement, the click the appropriately highlighted link (they are in pink). You should be able to install from there. If you have any difficulty with installation you can call (800) 4373715.

A Teacher Guide includes a weekly lesson schedule with space to record the due date and grade, chapter tests, midterm and final exam, and test answer keys. The Teacher Guide also includes reference pages that include a glossary, formulas, and postulates & theorems as presented by chapter.

The full color Student Text offers a thorough study of Euclidean geometry beginning with an introduction to geometry then topics builds incrementally nature of deductive reasoning, lines & angles, congruence, inequalities, parallel lines, quadrilaterals, transformations, area, similarity, right triangle, circles, concurrence theorems, regular polygons and the circle, geometric solids, and nonEuclidean Geometries. Each chapter ends with review and a midterm and final review. For every lesson, there are three sets of exercises all three practice the concepts presented, but the third set may offer a bit more challenge. Each exercise assumes knowledge gained in previous lessons in order to construct proofs. An appendix containing a glossary, all presented theorems, postulates, and formulas, and selected answers to exercises is most helpful.

The Solutions Manual is a big plus for this course! This book offers solutions (not just answers) for all exercises in each chapter, as well as chapter reviews and midterm and final review.

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".
