If your family already has Math-U-See's Geometry instructional DVD, this completes your essential materials for an up-and-coming geometry genius! The Math-U-See Geometry Student Pack contains the student workbook with lesson-by-lesson worksheets, review pages, and honors pages. It also includes the booklet of Geometry tests.
Major concepts and skills your geometry student will master include describing points, lines, rays, line segments, angles, and planes; calculating the measure of the interior and exterior angles of a regular polygon; understanding the geometry of a circle, sphere, and ellipse; understanding and computing volume and surface area of solids; using the Pythagorean theorem to identify triangle attributes; and applying postulates, theorems, definitions, and properties to geometric proofs. Some of the other topics the course explores include working with algebraic expressions containing radicals, completing geometric transformations within a Cartesian plane, and understanding basic trigonometric functions.
As one of the most powerful branches of mathematics, geometry is focused on the math behind the physical space of God's creation. This subject is far more than the study of shapes, though. It's a subject that develops students' reasoning skills, and Math-U-See's multisensory, mastery approach to learning is an especially good option for young minds that struggle with abstract concepts.
