When Stephanie and Melissa finished Saxon Algebra 1 and started into Saxon Algebra 2 it didn't go well. Wisely, Linda decided to hold off on Algebra 2 and use Geometry by Harold Jacobs instead. After completing this course, they again started Saxon Algebra 2, follwed by Saxon Advanced Math, and did quite well. In fact, Stephanie scored a 30 on her ACT test in math, the highest math score that any of our children attained on the test. Why the turnaround? Was it just an extra year of maturity, or was it the way that Harold Jacobs presented the material that helped math to "gel" in their minds?

This latest edition of Jacobs Geometry preserves all the features that have made his text so popular with educators in the past. Like previous editions, this text stresses logic and deductive reasoning but does not take a "discovery" approach. This is an excellent geometry course with clear explanations of geometric concepts that include practice with proofs (informal and paragraph). The second chapter (six lessons) is appropriately devoted to logic in preparation for constructing proofs. Topics build incrementally and each practice set assumes knowledge gained in previous lessons in order to construct proofs. An appendix containing all presented theorems and postulates is most helpful. Also appreciated are the periodic algebra reviews, which keep students from forgetting these skills as they devote the year to geometry studies. This course is a thorough study of Euclidean geometry but concludes with a single chapter of four lessons that present non-Euclidean geometries. The "teacher's guide" is solely an answer key providing answers to all exercises. The test book contains chapter tests, a mid-term, a final, and test answers. Please note: instructional content of this version including answers is mostly identical to the content of the older, out-of-print version published by W. H. Freeman & Co.

A fine introductory geometry text that works both for home schooling and regular classes. Could be more concise, but the teacher can adapt the material.

This was a great book for my daughter to learn from. It took a bit of time at first for her to get used to the style. The book takes straight-forward concepts and delivers them in an abstract way so she couldn't always grasp where the text was trying to take her. But once she got used to it, she took off. Since we started homeschooling several years ago, this was the first time she didn't need my help throughout the course. She did most of it on her own.

What is the difference between this book and my father's world book?

Geometry: Seeing, Doing and Understanding Teacher Third Edition (My Father's World printing)
Geometry: Seeing, Doing and Understanding Teacher Third Edition (My Father's World printing)
Geometry Teacher Guide 3rd Edition (Jacobs)
Geometry Teacher Guide 3rd Edition (Jacobs)
BEST ANSWER: These two books do not provide the same information.

The Master Book edition (#038671) includes a daily schedule, chapter, mid-term, and final tests, and complete answer keys.

The My Father's World edition (#023426) provides only the answers to all textbook exercises. Tests and Test answers are in a separate publication - #023427 - https://www.rainbowresource.com/product/sku/023427
I have the text book published by Freeman can I use it with this or do I have to get the one published by My Father's world?
A shopper on Jun 15, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I haven’t seen both personally but as long as it’s the 3rd Edition I think you’ll be fine with either text book.
Do I need the Jacob's geo for teachers if I am buying Dr Callahan's DVDs?

Ask Dr. Callahan Geometry DVD Set w/ Printed Teacher Guide, Tests, Syllabus
BEST ANSWER: Yes you will need the teacher's book. It is basically the answer/solutions to all the problems in the book. Dr. Callahan's DVD demonstrates some of the main concepts in each lesson and provides guidance as to what problems to assign and how to grade the tests. You don't want to assign every problem, it's too much to do all at once. My son actually taught himself to Chapter 11 by just reading and taking notes. Chapter 11 was the first chapter that overwhelmed him, so I bought Callahan's DVDs to aid in teaching the geometry concepts.
