Geometry For Dummies
by Mark Ryan
Does the thought of geometry make you jittery? You’re not alone. Fortunately, this down-to-earth guide helps you approach it from a new angle, making it easier than ever to conquer your fears and score your highest in geometry. From getting started with geometry basics to making friends with lines and angles, you’ll be proving triangles congruent, calculating circumference, using formulas, and serving up pi in no time.
Geometry is a subject full of mathematical richness and beauty. But it’s a subject that bewilders many students because it’s so unlike the math they’ve done before—it requires the use of deductive logic in formal proofs. If you’re having a hard time wrapping your mind around what that even means, you’ve come to the right place! Inside, you’ll find out how a proof’s chain of logic works and even discover some secrets for getting past rough spots along the way. You don’t have to be a math genius to grasp geometry, and this book helps you get un-stumped in a hurry!
- Find out how to decode complex geometry proofs
- Learn to reason deductively and inductively
- Make sense of angles, arcs, area, and more
- Improve your chances of scoring higher in your geometry class
There’s no reason to let your nerves get jangled over geometry—your understanding will take new shape with the help of Geometry For Dummies.
Geometry For Dummies Education Bundle
by Mark Ryan
Before you know it, you’ll be understanding proofs like an expert. You’ll find out how a proof’s chain of logic works and discover some basic secrets for getting past rough spots. Soon, you’ll be proving triangles congruent, calculating circumferences, using formulas, and serving up pi. The non-proof parts of the book contain helpful formulas and tips that you can use anytime you need to shape up your knowledge of shapes. You’ll even get a feel for why geometry continues to draw people to careers in art, engineering, carpentry, robotics, physics, and computer animation, among others. You’ll discover how to:
- Identify lines, angles, and planes
- Measure segments and angles
- Calculate the area of a triangle
- Use tips and strategies to make proofs easier
- Figure the volume and surface area of a pyramid
- Bisect angles and construct perpendicular lines
- Work with 3-D shapes
- Work with figures in the x-y coordinate system
So quit scratching your head. Geometry For Dummies, 2nd Edition, gets you un-stumped in a hurry. When you need to shape up, open up the included Geometry Workbook For Dummies, which contains over 290 pages with hundreds of practice problems featuring ample workspace to work out the problems. Each problem includes a step-by-step answer set to identify where you went wrong (or right). You’ll be proving yourself proof-worthy in no time!

Geometry For Dummies
by Wendy Arnone
Well, don’t fret. You’re in the same boat as almost everyone else. Geometry has about a million (a rough estimate) uses in real life – for example, you may have some home improvement projects you want to tackle; you have to know how to cut the wood at certain angles to make them fit together. ( Bet you didn’t realize that carpenters have to be experts at geometry as well!) With a basic knowledge of geometry, building some bookshelves for your kid’s room becomes so much easier.
Geometry For Dummies can give you that basic understanding of geometry, and you might actually have a little fun along the way. Written in a breezy, easy-to-understand, non-textbook-like style, this book helps you with all your geometrical dilemmas.
In Geometry For Dummies, you’ll find out about the following topics and more:
- Understanding lines and angles
- Working up a geometry proof
- All those funny shapes: circles, rectangles, triangles, and the ever versatile polygon
- Having your Pi and eating it, too
- Taking the next step into trigonometry
- Doing someone a solid: Exploring prisms, pyramids, cylinders, cones, and spheres
- Top Ten list of cool careers that use geometry and tips for making geometry easier
- Appendices with formulas, theorems, and other helpful geometry resources
So whatever your reason for wanting to learn geometry – a home improvement project, helping your kid with his or her homework, or just a fascination with funny shapes – Geometry For Dummies is just what you need to recall what you learned in school and put it to good use.
