by Stanley F. Schmidt, Ph.D.
This volume follows Algebra II in the Life of Fred series. Although it is possible to
do Geometry between Algebra I and Algebra II, Dr. Schmidt recommends finishing Algebra I and II before taking Geometry.
For those unfamiliar with the Life of Fred series, this is a complete geometry course for High School. However, it is a lot more fun than your average math course.
Concepts are learned in the context of one day in the life of a six year old college professor. His antics and adventures always seem
to involve math, making Life of Fred: Geometry a most enjoyable and understandable endeavor.
Concepts covered include:
Points and Lines, Angles, Triangles, Parallel Lines, Perpendicular Lines, Quadrilaterals, Area, Similar Triangles, Symbolic Logic, Right Triangles, Circles, Constructions, Non-Euclidean Geometry, Solid Geometry, Geometry in Four Dimensions, Coordinate Geometry, Flawless (Modern) Geometry.
