Overview

This title in the Homework Helpers series will reinforce mathematical foundations and bolster students' confidence in geometry. The concepts are explained in everyday language before the examples are worked. Good habits, such as checking your answers after every problem, are reinforced. There are practice problems throughout the book, and the answers to all of the practice problems are included. The problems are solved clearly and systematically, with step-by-step instructions provided.

In this book, particular attention is placed on topics that students traditionally struggle with the most. While this book could be used to supplement standard geometry textbooks, it could also be used by college students or adult learners to refresh long-forgotten concepts and skills.

Homework Helpers: Geometry includes all the topics that are traditionally covered in a high school geometry course, including:
• Parallel lines
• Congruent triangles
• Quadrilaterals and other polygons
• Similarity and special triangles
• Right triangle trigonometry
• Circles
• Area, volume, and solids
The book pays particular attention to strategies for understanding and constructing logical arguments and proofs. Common patterns that reappear in many proofs are highlighted. In addition, geometry problems that review arithmetic and algebraic skills are presented and fully explained.
