Geometry Help - Old Saybrook CT

Many Old Saybrook,
CT
students who performed reasonably well in Algebra I are surprised at the
difficulty of high school Geometry.

The visual nature of Geometry along with the procedurally challenging method of
solving geometric proofs makes for a different way of mathematical
thinking.

The most popular complaint from our Old
Saybrook, CT
students centers upon geometric proofs. Throughout the proof
process, the student must lay out a series of logical steps until the answer is
reached. For each step, the student is required to cite a theorem or
postulate that backs up their statement (i.e. where two opposite angles are
equal within a triangle, the sides opposite the angles will also be equal)

This process places two demands on the student – knowing each and every
relevant theorem and knowing when/how to apply each theorem.. This
requires students to develop a sort of “Geometry logic” thought process that
will help reveal the sequence of steps in a proof. This does not come
naturally for many students.

When faced with the challenge of honing this new type of Geometry thinking, Old
Saybrook, CT students may not
recognize the importance of fully mastering the thought process. In these
cases, A and B students, who never had trouble with math up until Geometry, may
find themselves in the C range. With reasonably good grades in their
other classes, they could make the argument “I’m never going to need Geometry
when I have a job, so why should I put in so much effort?” but the fact of the
matter is, Geometry is a critical building block for pre-calculus, trigonometry,
and calculus classes.

Perhaps more significantly, the SAT and ACT math focus heavily on Geometry
knowledge and, regardless, good grades in all classes are essential for
admission to competitive colleges. The Learning Consultants provides the
