Step into an engaging textbook authored by Harold Jacobs. Jacobs Geometry: Seeing, Doing, Understanding Third Edition takes the whimsy and brightness usually reserved for elementary textbooks and combines it with academically rigorous content to create an engaging geometry experience. Real world applications from history and modern-day are used to aid the student in grasping emerging concepts and strengthening understanding as the lesson moves forward. The practice problems in the book are stepped into 3 sets. Set I presents the topic in basic problems, Set II requires application of the concepts practiced in Set I, and Set III provides optional challenge problems that extend the knowledge and applications learned thus far into an enriching critical thinking exercise. This book contains: 

  • Colorful and engaging examples 
  • Tiered problem sets to learn and gain confidence gradually 
  • Challenge problems for each lesson (Set III) 
  • Optional algebra reviews at the end of most chapters to brush up on foundational skills 
  • Consistent chapter reviews 
  • A referential list of postulates and theorems at the back of the book 

Continue to give your homeschooled student a high-quality math education with Kolbe Academy’s Geometry course. The pace, structure, and texts selected for this course present and teach geometry in a traditional method, where logical thinking is employed to solve problems systematically with a procedure. Explicit instruction and repetition contribute as well to make a classically rigorous course that will prepare your child to take the math sections on standardized tests and to take higher level math. With a prerequisite of completing Algebra 1, your student should be ready to move into even more abstract concepts and readily apply knowledge previously learned to the new information presented in this course. This course covers: 

  • Conditional statements 
  • Direct and indirect proofs 
  • Pythagorean theorem 
  • Lines, parallel lines, angles, area 
  • Congruence  
  • Similarity 
  • Inequalities  
  • Quadrilaterals, circles, right triangles 
  • Regular polygons 
  • Transformations 
  • The Concurrence Theorems
