Key to Geometry workbook series

Key to Geometry Workbooks

Here is a non-intimidating way to prepare students for formal geometry. Key to Geometry workbooks introduce students to a wide range of geometric discoveries as they do step-by-step constructions. Using only a pencil, compass, and straightedge, students begin by drawing lines, bisecting angles, and reproducing segments. Later they do sophisticated constructions involving over a dozen steps-and are prompted to form their own generalizations. When they finish, students will have been introduced to 134 geometric terms and will be ready to tackle formal proofs.

A High School First Course in Euclidean Plane Geometry
This is a high school geometry course by Charles Aboughantous. It is based on Euclid's five postulates and his most common theorems. It promotes the art and the skills of developing logical proofs. Practice problems are included at the end of each chapter in three groups: geometric construction problems, computational problems, and theorematical problems. The answers to the computational problems are included at the end of the book. The solutions manual of the book contains detailed solutions to all the problems in the book. It is free to home schooled students upon proof of purchase of the book. Samples are found at http://home.earthlink.net/~draboughantous/geometry.html
