This text provides a balanced study of proofs, theorems, and real-life applications of geometry. The text presents concepts in a step-by-step process with plenty of helpful examples. It walks the student step-by-step through the basic concepts of angles and degrees, as well as more complex proofs and theorems. Brief chapter introductions and photographs introduce an element of real-world practicality, while biblical-based material is used to shed light on the purpose of geometry. Example exercises provide additional help in recognizing theories, and instructions are given for each new concept; exercises follow, and are given in sets, with a cumulative review finishing off each unit. Concepts covered include incidence geometry; subsets; segments & measurement; angles & measurement; proofs; area; volume; symmetry; trigonometry and more. Glossary, index and odd-numbered answers are also included.
