if only all textbooks were this good!
My son and I are really enjoying this geometry textbook. It is easy to understand and logically organized into lessons that can easily be covered in a day and build upon each other in a sequental manner. It's possible to solve all problems, even the most difficult ones, based on the information presented in each lesson and the three sets of problems that follow each lesson allow students and/or their parents to choose the difficulty level best suited to the students' needs and abilities. In the first problem set, the problems gradually increase in difficulty to help students who are having trouble understanding the concepts presented while the other two sets challenge students who grasp the concepts easily and are likely to be bored by the "baby steps" of the first set. The humor and real world problems throughout the textbook really help make geometry fun and relevant. I was disappointed to see that this edition will no longer offered at Rainbow Resources as it offers excellent coverage of high school geometry for $30 less (when purchased with the test bank and solutions guide) than the newer edition. I would strongly recommend that one purchase the solutions guide with this textbook as the textbook only contains answers to a few problems (not even every other problem). We've found the test bank to be quite useful but one could probably substitute the chapter review questions (the answers to which can be found in the solutions guide) for the tests given in it if necessary. I prefer not to do so as the chapter review provides my son an opportunity to review the material covered before taking the chapter test.

I teach in a home school cooperative where I have used Jacobs Geometry - both 2nd and 3rd edition - for the past six years (I also use Jacobs Elementary Algebra) I LOVE the Jacobs approachit emphasizes understanding rather than just method Many opportunities exist for students to challenge themselves rather than just drill The book is neatly divided into lessons which are a day�s worth of work each (some effort has to be made to choose homework problems as it�s unreasonable to ask any student to do all the problems for each lesson)

After viewing this textbook in person I felt it was the best fit for teaching my rising 9th grader and two other students geometry. Reviews indicate that it is a thorough text and user-friendly.

I have heard good things about Jacob's Geometry but its not always easy to find or affordable. So we decided to finally commit. Yay!

It was recommended; and I have viewed previews of this book that look promising. I was disappointed with the geometry version of an electronic curriculum that I had used for years and opted to try this instead.

Seemed like the perfect "go along" with the student book since math is not my "strong suit".

Is there a solution manual available?
A shopper on Mar 16, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yes! It is this item:
http://www.rainbowresource.com/proddtl.php?id=023426

The title should read:
Answers to Exercises for Geometry Seeing, Doing, Understanding.

Although this is a solutions manual I have felt that some of the solutions are just answers and do not offer enough of an explanation.

I highly recommend purchasing the entire Callahan system available through Rainbow if the parent is not already great at geometry. That does all the teaching and they offer additional, personalized solutions if needed.

I hope this was helpful

How many problems are in each lesson?
A shopper on Feb 2, 2016
BEST ANSWER: The lessons are broken into 3 sets of problems. The first 2 have around 20-30 each, and the third one is a puzzle question. We started the year doing one set together in class, and the second as a graded invidual assignment. Now we just do the one set as homework.
