Geometry proofs may trip up more students than any other single topic in all of high school math. Geometry For Dummies, 2nd Edition, tackles this problem head on, providing proven strategies for solving geometry proofs when students are stumped. Students need help with getting a handle on what seems to them to be a totally foreign and mysterious process. This book presents a dozen powerful strategies that make proofs much easier for the students who struggle with them. This book contains dozens of examples of places in a proof where a student is likely to get stuck and then provide tips for how to get unstuck. Mark Ryan has a proven ability to explain concepts in a way that gives students the clearest, easiest, and best way of understanding a concept. For example, instead of routinely listing the properties of various quadrilaterals (four-sided figures) as most geometry books do, relying on rote memory for student learning, Geometry For Dummies 2nd Edition explains how these properties (and others) can be understood and learned other than by rote memory, in a way that fosters understanding. The second edition covers many of the same concepts, such as deductive and inductive reasoning, lines, angles, arcs, circles, multi-sided figures, substitution principles, pi, area and slope, inequalities, rates and rations, and more. The new edition also includes detailed explanations of how to work example problems, pinpointing areas that can trick students into misunderstanding the true nature of the problem.
