Publisher Description:

Homeschooling geometry is a breeze with this DVD supplement.

Students view lessons in conjunction with reading their textbook and watch an experienced mathematics instructor solve example problems step by step.

Dr. Callahan emphasizes the importance of understanding the concepts behind geometry and focuses on explaining just that in his video lessons. Students can follow along as he teaches key concepts without lots of difficult math jargon.

As a longtime university professor, homeschool dad, and math teacher for homeschool groups, Dr. Callahan has plenty of experience with what geometry concepts students need to know, what they find difficult, and how to explain both well. Dr. Callahan is a casual but thorough instructor who will give your child the tools he or she needs to understand the material.

Between Jacobs Geometry and Dr. Callahan's instruction, you can be confident in your student's grasp of geometry.

Approximately 4 hours of content on 5 DVDs.


Now in third edition and being published by Master Books, this newest version of Jacobs Geometry: Seeing, Doing, and Understanding 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). Please note: instructional content of this version including answers and solutions is mostly identical to the content of the older, out-of-print version published by W. H. Freeman & Co.

The full color Student Text offers a thorough study of Euclidean geometry beginning with an introduction to geometry then topics builds incrementally - nature of deductive reasoning, lines & angles, congruence, inequalities, parallel lines, quadrilaterals, transformations, area, similarity, right triangle, circles, concurrence theorems, regular polygons and the circle, geometric solids, and non-Euclidean Geometries. Each chapter ends with review and a midterm and final review. For every lesson, there are three sets of exercises - all three practice the concepts presented, but the third set may offer a bit more challenge. Each exercise assumes knowledge gained in previous lessons in order to construct proofs. An appendix containing a glossary, all presented theorems, postulates, and formulas, and selected answers to exercises is most helpful.

A Teacher Guide includes a weekly lesson schedule with space to record the due date and grade, chapter tests, mid-term and final exam, and test answer keys. The Teacher Guide also includes reference pages that include a glossary, formulas, and postulates & theorems as presented by chapter.

The Solutions Manual is a big plus for this course! This book offers solutions (not just answers) for all exercises in each chapter, as well as chapter reviews and midterm and final review.

DVD Instruction is a wonderful tutorial taught by Dr. Dale Callahan. Using examples and illustrations, students will learn to write proofs and prove properties of geometric figures. The DVDs correspond to chapters 1-15 of the text, and there are five discs in the set. Students using this DVD set also have access to free homework help, via e-mail, from Dr. Callahan.

The Teacher Guide suggests that students will need a notebook and graph paper for use with the course, and the Dr. Callahan DVD (Disc 1, introduction) suggests that you will need a protractor, compass, straight edge, and calculator for the course. Dr. Callahan's suggestion is that, at minimum, you should have a scientific calculator with SIN and COSIN, but if you are going on in math, a graphing calculator (TI89) is preferred.

For thorough preparation for the ACT, SAT, and future math courses, this geometry course has the bases covered. ~ Donna

So my son can do his math independently
Casey V on Jun 2, 2020
We used teaching dvd's with Saxon in previous years and had excellent results. When our homeschool provider recommended Jacob's for geometry, I wanted a similar format.

Do I have to use this printing (Master Books) with this DVD or can I use an older printing (Freeman)?
A shopper on Jun 15, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Yes, the DVD can be used with the older Freeman printing of this 3rd edition Jacob's Geometry.
Is this DVD different from the previous Dr. Callaghan Geometry video? Is it tailored to the Jacobs lessons?
A shopper on Oct 28, 2017
BEST ANSWER: According to Master Books/New Leaf Press, there are some minor edits to the DVD series to match the changes we made to the textbooks and new licensing agreement. They are however essentially the same DVD content and match up to either book. (My Father's World or New Leaf/Master Books)

not every lesson
I only previewed the CDs and then returned them (to a friend, not RR!), but I wanted to post because there was so little info available when I was looking myself. The book contains the typical 180 homeschool lessons, the total teaching time on these 5 cds is 236 minutes. Do the math :) I didn't watch all the lessons, just sporadic ones. Dr. Callahan lumps entire chapters together instead of teaching lesson by lesson. I've used DIVE from Saxon in the past & I just I just thought that was the standard. Again, I didn't watch all lessons or use these cds, but what I saw wasn't what I was looking for: low tech, more explanation of terms, not many examples. I didn't investigate the Ask Dr. Callahan aspect that comes with these CDs, so I can't comment on that. My preference is a lesson at a time instruction, with a few examples of each lesson practice worked out, and these CDs are definitely not that.
