Geometry, perhaps most obviously artistic branch of mathematics, is presented here in a visual, tactile way. With little emphasis on proofs, students are given a clear understanding of relationships and connections between shapes and solids. The more rigorous math student may find it helpful to combine this work with the proofs in Jacob's Geometry. Still this text offers a thorough understanding of topics, applications, and problem solving. As with all UCSMP secondary texts, topics are presented in clear ways so that students can teach themselves. Students understand why they are using certain procedures before they practice using them. Other books in the series include {book transition-mathematics}, {book ucsmp-algebra}, {book ucsmp-advanced-algebra}, {book functions-statistics-and-trigonometry}, and {book uscmp-precalculus-and-discrete-mathematics}.

This is math-mom.com, the website built on our belief that learning is naturally fun. With the right expectation and approach, anyone can enjoy learning. But since each of us is unique, we each must find our own best way to learn. We know that we have found our way when learning is fun.

Here you will find books, products, and ideas that our family has used to make learning fun for each one of us. We hope that it encourages you to find your own way to have the fun of learning.
