It eases you into all theprinciples and formulas you need to analyze two- andthree-dimensional shapes, and it gives you the skills andstrategies you need to write geometry proofs.

Before you know it, you’ll be understanding proofs like anexpert. You’ll find out how a proof’s chain of logicworks and discover some basic secrets for getting past rough spots.Soon, you’ll be proving triangles congruent, calculatingcircumferences, using formulas, and serving up pi. The non-proofparts of the book contain helpful formulas and tips that you canuse anytime you need to shape up your knowledge of shapes.You’ll even get a feel for why geometry continues to drawpeople to careers in art, engineering, carpentry, robotics,physics, and computer animation, among others.
