Summary, etc.: Students studying geometry in school will certainly learn about lines and angles, circles and triangles, and they&#x;ll find everything they need to master those topics. But Geometry is so much more than shapes! Proofs are at the heart of any Geometry course, and they&#x;re most often where students struggle. Geometry For Dummies, 3rd Edition, is overflowing with helpful and practical, plain-English information about proofs to help students succeed. --Publisher's description.
