Publisher Description:

Harold Jacobs' Geometry has been an authoritative standard for years, with nearly one million students having learned geometry principles through the text. Now revised with a daily schedule, the text is adaptable for either classroom or homeschool use. With the use of innovative discussions, cartoons, anecdotes, and vivid exercises, students will not only learn but will also find their interest growing with each lesson. The full-color student book focuses on guided discovery to help students develop geometric awareness. Geometry is all around us. Prepare to understand its dynamic influence so much better!

  • Student book includes easy-to-follow instructions and selected answers in the back
  • Teacher guide provides a detailed schedule, tests, and test answer keys
  • Solutions manual helps the student with understanding all the answers from the book.

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

We loved the incremental approach to Jacob's Algebra and are excited to follow it up with Geometry. Looking at the Table of Contents, this appears to be a thorough study of Geometry with the incremental approach that makes it very doable for a homeschooling math student.

I reviewed the math curriculums that would work best for my children and then decided to go with these as I can use Dr Callahan's online instruction in conjunction with the Jacob's texts.

Jacobs Geometry
We are extremely pleased with this program so far. We tried another geometry program and found it very difficult and not really user friendly. So far, this has changed geometry from a subject our daughter dreaded to one she is enjoying and learning. This was recommended by the homeschool academy we are enrolled in and it seems excellent (we're about just on Chapter 4 out of 16). We had taken the advice of a former homeschool mom and now wish we had started the year with Jacobs! So far it is clear, concise and straightforward.
