A Text Book of Geometry – Prepare for IAAT
1. Why this book?
After your child finished the “First Algebra Book“, you might start the classic “Geometry Textbook”. I don’t need to repeat why the classic is not dead even after a century. It is very easy to understand and very solid in the basics.
Lots of very bright kids lose their momentum in high school after they cannot ace in geometry.
This is the book that will give your child confidence in geometry. It is the milestone for his/her high school success. The TJHSST entrance math test assumes that you have finished plain geometry. If your child has not taken the geometry class in middle school, his/her chance to get in TJHSST is very few. This is the book to give your child the solid base for him/her before he takes the geometry in middle school.
2. What is the best book to start?
I have done thorough researches on all available geometry books. Nowadays, the book is printed colorful and beautiful. But it lacks the basic logic under the beauty of the geometry that fascinated Euclid over 2000 year old.

3. What benefits will my child get from this book?
This book will build up his/her confidence in geometry and then help him/her aces in all the AP physics, pre-calculus and calculus. Sure it will help him/her to improve her PSAT and SAT math score.
4. When should I start my child with this book?
You should start it after your son finish the “first algebra book”. In most Asian country, geometry is given in 2nd year in middle school. So you can start this book when your child in grade 6.

|I prefer the PDF version. I normally print the chapter I will use with my son. After he is done with it, I will print the next chapter. It is easy to use. You can print it anywhere at home or at work. You can take the printed pages when you are on vacation, or with him/her at the after school programs. The PDF version is the version printed 1898. It is legal copy. The purpose of providing this PDF is not for profit. It is to provide parents with an alternative path to accelerate you child’s academic success. If your child gets ahead with geometry, he/she would get ahead in his/her classes in math, physics, chemistry, TJHSST entrance test or SHSAT (Specialized High School Admissions Test), then AP classes.|
