First, if you encounter frustration with your high school career geometry, it is very important for you to realize that it is not unusual, especially in the beginning of the course. Please note that most students get beyond the confusion and frustration if they do not give up. In practice the techniques I teach you, keep working hard, and even if it takes longer for some than others, which eventually lamp for you.

It may be helpful if you understand why geometry is so different from other math courses. A traditional high school geometry course on logic. It is abstract. It requires a different way of thinking. The geometry is not a lot of practice and practice. He thinks learning critical concepts and principles and how and when to apply.

It is true that the previous algebra course required too critical, but not to the point that the geometry imposed. However, when working with these critical thinking skills in high school geometry to develop zijn there some simple simple skills that must be managed if you want to succeed.

Learn all the terms and definitions as presented. This is absolutely necessary. The same applies to the postulates and theorems. And not just remember them as a matter of fact, you do not remember it word for word. But make sure you have a very clear picture of what each term means. I often tell my students: “You can not expect a problem on a scalene triangle, if you do not know what an equilateral triangle.” Develop your vocabulary of geometry.

Do not rush your work geometry. Your goal is not “just” so you’re done with him, but to really understand. In tackling the problems assigned, review your notes and class on the material in question look in your manual. As you work through homework problems, check your answers with those in the back of the book. If you do something wrong, go back and reconsider. If you still can not understand, put a star or a tick in this problem to the teacher to think about it the next time the class questions.

Finally, when you’re done your geometry homework, you need a bit more! Resist the urge to immediately slam your book shut and put your work. Spend a few minutes to look back on the problems and think about what to do at all. The development of this habit to reflect on your work can reap huge benefits in understanding and memory of important concepts. The more you understand and learn from each mission, the less you have to study and investigate when it comes time to review.
