Teaching Geometry: A Guide for Homeschooling Parents
Teaching Geometry is the companion text to Essential Geometry. Like the student edition, it isn't your parent's math book. The standard teacher's edition of a textbook is usually little more than a carbon copy of the student version with some additional notes and answers to the chapter exercises. This book is not that.
This book is intended as a supplement to the student book. The sections provide an overview of the material, give it context within the rest of the book and provide teaching ideas and material for further discussion. It presents useful additional information but doesn't include a complete copy of the student's text. To do this, I've broken up each section into up to five categories:
|In this Section||These brief descriptions give a quick English language outline of what the section covers along with how it ties to previous and future sections.|
|Learning Objectives||This section lists the specific objects that the students will be learning.|
|Required Material||If you're following along with the student's text then you should already have covered all of the required material. If you're using this book as a supplement to another program then you can use the information in this section to make sure that you've already covered everything you need to know for the material that will be discussed.|
|Teaching Suggestions||This is where you'll find the real curriculum material – items to discuss, different ways of looking at the material, problem solving methods and shortcuts.|
|Exercises Solutions||In this section, you'll find complete solutions (not just the final answers) to every question in the student's text.|
