The Geometry Geodome

We use the Glencoe Mathematics book titled Geometry - Virginia Edition ©2005 (by multiple contributing authors) as our text.

The Student Notes and Objectives handouts I have developed, linked below and via each chapter's web page, are derived from the text and the Virginia Standards of Learning (SOLs). These files are Microsoft Word files with imbeded Powerpoint graphics. I have noted the file size beside them for those still needing to use dial-up connections.

Each chapter's web page includes links to my Powerpoint lessons used in class in conjunction with the student notes. I also include with each chapter links to Glencoe Mathematics' resources for extra examples and randomly-generated self-check quizzes, organized by lesson, as well as tests covering a single chapter and groups of chapters. The extra examples are RTF (Rich Text Format) files developed for use by any word-processing software.

The key to success in mathematics is practice-practice-practice, and I encourage all students to take advantage of these tremendous resources.
