Who is asking: Student
How do you even do Geometry. Like what do you need to learn first and like a step by step plan.I realy need help I need it before school starts PLEASE!!!!!!!!!
thankyou for reading
The first answer is:
Geometry is hard because there is not a single, step by step algorithm
for solving problems. That also makes it interesting!
I would recommend getting a dynamic geometry program
(try Geometer's Sketchpad in a demo version available at http://www.keypress.com/product_info/sketch30.html) and playing
with problems. This exploration / conjecturing etc. is
key to being able to take on the problems with some level of
Everything we know about learning geometry indicates that
EXPERIENCE with concrete objects and with these kinds of
dynamic examples is the base to build on for the other
levels of work. Of course with this background, it can become
fun - more fun than algebra I would claim!
