Product Description:

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.

Publisher Description:

Geometry: Seeing, Doing, Understanding is designed to help the student who already has a foundational understanding of algebra to build upon this vital knowledge for geometry. This Teacher's Guide includes:

  • A convenient daily schedule with space to record grades
  • Chapter, mid-term, and final tests for student assessment
  • Answer keys for all tests utilized in the course

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

Tests and Solutions Jacob's Geometry.

Is the teacher's guide necessary if one purchases the solutions manual?
Jessica on Jul 1, 2019
BEST ANSWER: I did not buy a teacher's manual, only the solutions manual. We did ok without it but we found geometry as a whole more difficult than algebra. I don't know if it was geometry or the fact that it was from Jacob that was the problem. I don't remember geometry being this difficult in high school. We did not like all the proofs.
What is the difference between this book and my father's world book?

Geometry Teacher Guide 3rd Edition (Jacobs)
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)
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 teacher's guide?
A shopper on Jun 15, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Yes, you can. The content of the Freeman book and the one published by Master Book Publishers is identical. There are differences in graphics, however. Most of the graphics in the Freeman book were copyright protected and it wasn't possible for the new publishers to use them.
