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.
