The unique instructional method within Geometry: Seeing, Doing, Understanding Student Text by Jacobs ensures students understand both the "why" and "how" of geometry. Harold Jacobs' clear, conversational approach engages students, and that helps them master the concepts, principles, and application of geometry. The 3rd edition's full-color text guides students to interact with concepts using real-world examples, ensuring they'll know exactly how to apply the material to higher math courses, sciences, and everyday life. If your student is planning for college or a STEM career, Jacobs' geometry course equips with the tools for success!
The text is organized into 16 sections covering topics that include segments, angles, deductive reasoning, parallel and perpendicular lines, coordinate geometry, congruent and similar triangles, quadrilaterals, right triangle trigonometry, circles, and area and volume. One of the cornerstones of this course is the proper presentation of the mathematical proof—a key component of Euclidean geometry. This heavy presence of inductive logic helps build reasoning abilities in dialectic students and should be especially valuable for students who are interested in taking logic courses. In addition, students will examine polyhedra and touch briefly on non-Euclidean geometry at the end of the course—a fascinating way to finish the year!
