This is a good way to add to old textbook inventory when you have a large class.

The Best Book on Learning Geometry by Discovery

by Budzbuzz on Sep 5, 2009

This is an update of Serra's classic textbook on geometry using the discovery method of hands on exercises to develop and refine geometry skills. It takes time for students to adapt to this. They've been under rote and lecture for years. But with time and patience home schoolers can thrive and students in traditional schools have a tool to unravel some of the more difficult topics like parallel lines and proofs. The hands on constructions in the textbook can go a long way to 'getting it.' And some of the mind puzzles help train the kids to see the patterns that can unlock the mysteries of doing proofs. The newest versions are not as good as the older ones. The content is the same, but current textbook authors have to put in many pictures and a variety of color to meet current text standards. Sadly, the pictures and color are more of a distraction than a help. Special needs kids and kids frustrated with math don't need this kind of stimulus. They need content which nurtures them and Serra does it head and shoulders above all others. As a math teacher and collector/reviewer of math textbooks. I rate all other geometry texts no better than 3 stars, with most at one or two. This Sierra book is a 4 only because of too many pictures he had to put in. The older ones are 5 star because they have the best mix of picture and color.
