Geometry is one of the oldest mathematical subjects in history. Unfortunately, few geometry study guides offer clear explanations, causing many people to get tripped up or lost when trying to solve a proof--even when they know the terms and concepts like the back of their hand. However, this problem can be fixed with practice and some strategies for slicing through all the mumbo-jumbo and getting right to the heart of the proof. Geometry Workbook For Dummies ensures that practice makes perfect, especially when problems are presented without the stiff, formal style that you'd find in your math textbook. Written with a commonsense, street-smart approach, this guide gives you the step-by-step process to solve each proof, along with tips, shortcuts, and mnemonic devices to make sure the solutions stick. It also gives you plenty of room to work out your solutions, providing you with space to breathe and a clear head. This book provides you with the tools you need to solve all types of geometry problems, including: Congruent triangles Finding the area, angle, and size of quadrilaterals Angle-arc theorems and formulas Touching radii and tangents Connecting radii and chords Parallel, perpendicular, and intersecting lines and planes Slope, distance, and midpoint formulas Line and circle equations Handling rotations, reflections, and other transformations Packed with tons of strategies for solving proofs and a review of key concepts, Geometry Workbook For Dummies is the ultimate study aid for students, parents, and anyone with an interest in the field.
Acceptable. A book with obvious wear. May have some damage to the cover or binding but integrity is still intact. There might be writing in the margins, possibly underlining and highlighting of text, but no missing pages or anything that would compromise the legibility or understanding of the text.
Good. Spine creases, wear to binding and pages from reading. May contain limited notes, underlining or highlighting that does affect the text. Possible ex library copy, that'll have the markings and stickers associated from the library. Accessories such as CD, codes, toys, may not be included.
This paperback book shows normal wear and tear. The edges of the pages have markings, spots, or stains. The pages show normal wear and tear and/or folded (dog-ear) pages. Shipped to you from Goodwill of the Valleys, Roanoke VA. Thank you for your support!
Very good. Appearance of only slight previous use. Cover and binding show a little wear. All pages are undamaged with potentially only a few, small markings. Help save a tree. Buy all your used books from Thriftbooks. Read. Recycle and Reuse.
It was what my grand daughter needed. I think I could even learn geometry.

Beating Proofs Before They Beat You
Like the rest of the 'Dummies' series, this is a serious attempt with a good dose of humor to help people get over the hump about things they want or need to learn.
If you are in a curriculum heavy on proofs, then this is the book for you. It's good at talking you through the process of learning to do proofs. And it provides plenty of proof examples and exercises.
With this, Bob Millers help book and Serra's textbook, you can tackle anything you need to know about geometry with confidence
