a good book for middle school

My kid uses this book for middle school course. It is quite good, clear and in a certain depth for middle school student.

A book without many faults

Despite what Don Snyder says in his review, I've found the book to be well-written and informative for the most part. Geometry has always been and still is my favorite element of math and I enjoyed taking my high school course with this textbook. Thanks to one of the teachers at my alma mater I now have a copy of this book that was left in the computer lab. The concept of proof is explained to some extent, but should also be supplemented with other material. The students who generally did well in proofs in my class and the other classes I've seen use this book usually went in for one-on-one help with the teacher. There is one section of this book that seems to confuse even the smartest students, and that is the section about circles--specifically finding arcs. I didn't understand them until I consulted another textbook. Last year many people complained about that section who were using this book. The glossary makes up for the bad section on circles. It is well-written and informative. Another big plus is the review of algebra concepts when they are necessary to solve particular problems. The Algebra II text reviews geometry concepts in the same fashion. Geometry isn't a math for everyone. Some people get A's in Algebra and B's in Geometry. Others are the opposite. There are also a very few people who can get an A in both (they are usually either really hard workers or are just natural geniuses). This book should help everyone get an A or B as long as they use it and ignore the section about arcs completely.

This is the best introductory level geometry book out there!

I used this book in my highschool Geometry class after using another popular Geometry textbook at another school. This book is the best one for students of all abilities - each lesson centers around a different aspect of a uniting theme (Chapter 1 - Circles, etc) using photographs, graphs, activities and simple, but thorough explanations. After easily helping you master the basics, each lesson then includes an advanced section for more able students which explores the subject more deeply. The best book out there! I recommend any math book from this publisher!
