  • Author Carolyn C. Wheater

    Carolyn C. Wheater teaches mathematics at the Nightingale-Bamford School in New York City. She earned a B.A. in mathematics from Marymount Manhattan College. She has been a teacher and administrator in New York City independent schools for 30 years, teaching students from preschool through college. She lives in Hawthorne, New Jersey, with her husband, daughter, and two dogs.

This new title in the Homework Helpers series will reinforce mathematical foundations and bolster students’ confidence in geometry. The concepts are explained in everyday language before the examples are worked. Good habits, such as checking your answers after every problem, are reinforced. There are practice problems throughout the book, and the answers to all of the practice problems are included. The problems are solved clearly and systematically, with step-by-step instructions provided.

Particular attention is placed on topics that students traditionally struggle with the most. While this book could be used to supplement standard geometry textbooks, it could also be used by college students or adult learners to refresh long-forgotten concepts and skills.

Homework Helpers: Geometry includes all the topics that are traditionally covered in a high school geometry course, including:

  • Parallel lines
  • Congruent lines
  • Quadrilaterals and other polygons
  • Similarity and special triangles
  • Right triangle trigonometry
  • Circles
  • Area volume and solids
