Item Description...
You know that geometry is a math thing, right? You remember that much from school. You also probably remember that it has something to do with circles, squares, diameters, angles, and all those other terms that floated in (and probably right out of ) your head as you were cramming for all those geometry tests way back when. But your math teacher probably never told you that you'd actually use that stuff in real life--if he had, maybe you would have paid more attention!

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.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Quick review but it might just confuse you  Dec 28, 2007
Easy read/review of geometry, but so many mistakes in the proofs that it doesn't seem like anyone edited the thing.
Simple yet Effective  Apr 4, 2006
This is a book written in simple terms and explanations about Geometry. It is not a deep venture into the subject but is meant to be a thought provoking tool to stimulate detuctive reasoning and apply logic to material presnted in this book. This is a starting point for the person who knows very little about Geometry but is going to delve into it.
Great for Home schoolers  Dec 7, 2005
I got this book for our son, who home schools and wanted to study Geometry. Since I am mathematically dysfunctional, I ordered it for him.
It's great; easy to understand, fun to use, and full of great humor. He loves it. Maybe when he's done with it, I'll use it myself!
Not bad, not great  Jun 2, 2005
This book offers a pretty good overview of the subject, and is basically well-written and easy to read, except there are numerous typos, especially in the proofs, which sometimes makes them hard to follow (and hard to trust). She also offers numerous theorems and postulates, followed by a "Translation" into supposed normal English, but frequently her translation is no improvement over the original. So as long as you keep your eyes open for catching her occasional mistakes, it's an OK book.
Not very helpful  Apr 7, 2005
I purchased this book to be a refresher for me in Geometry for prep for my GMAT. I was just looking for the basics and some sample problems.
This book does go over the basics but fails to provide sample problems and does not give many examples, only illustrations to explain a concept.
I also found the book to be a lot of 'filler' for example there is a chapter that mentioned "cool careers that use geomtry"
The final chapter of the book which is a quickie guide/summary is probably the best part of the book.
Overall if you want a book with problems or are out of Junior High School, I dont suggest this one
