Geometry is frequently challenging for students because every problem involves a figure that students must use to solve the problem. It is very important early on to master the art of reading the geometric figures properly in order to do well in this subject. The best way to do this is to introduce the definitions early on and solve problems involving diagrams to give students the much needed practice. The Geometry Tutor series is geared towards students who have been exposed to Algebra 1 and are ready to tackle geometry. Subjects covered in this series include points, rays, lines, triangle congruence and similarity, area of polygons, volume, circular figures, proofs and much more. The skills learned in this course will aid students in more advanced areas of math and science and are used in other Math courses, such as the Pythagorean Theorem, triangle similarity and geometric proofs. The Geometry Tutor Seriesis a complete 20 lesson series covering all of the core topics in detail.
Students Will Learn Everything From: - Introductory concepts in Geometry - Complimentary and supplementary angles - How to solve problems involving triangle congruency - How to work with and identify quadrilaterals - The theorems of triangle similarity
What sets this series apart from other teaching tools is that the concepts are taught entirely through step-by-step example problems of increasing difficulty. It works by introducing each new concept in an easy to understand way and using example problems that are worked out step-by-step and line-by-line to completion. If a student has a problem with coursework or homework, simply find a similar problem fully worked on in the series and review for the steps needed to solve the problem. Students will be able to work problems with ease, improve their problem-solving skills and understand the underlying concepts of Geometry. This series is best used in order from Volume 1 through Volume 20
Program Features: - Improve students problem-solving skills - Teaches how to solve problems step-by-step & line-by-line - Working example problems of increasing difficulty
Grade Level: 9 - College & General Interest for Adults / All Audiences. Curriculum Content Areas: Mathematics, Geometry This program teaches students how to solve geometry problems involving triangle similarity. We first review ratio and proportion and then present the theorems of triangle similarity including the side-side-side and side-angle-side theorems. Numerous problems are worked to teach students how to determine if two triangles are similar.
