Really. This isnâ??t going to hurt at all . . .

Understanding geometry is really nothing more than learning how to solve fascinating puzzles involving lines and shapes of many different kinds. This book takes you step by step through the process of discovering the relationships that exist between parallel and perpendicular lines and analyzing the characteristics of distinct shapes such as circles, quadrilaterals, and triangles. Youâ??ll also learn how principles of geometry can help you solve many real-world problems, and youâ??ll find ideas for interesting projects. Amusing â??Brain Ticklerâ? quizzes will help take the pain out of study and improve your grades.

For Middle School and High School Students
The author demonstrates how solving geometric problems amounts to fitting parts together to solve interesting puzzles. Students discover relationships that exist between parallel and perpendicular lines; analyze the characteristics of distinct shapes such as circles, quadrilaterals, and triangles; and learn how geometric principles can solve real-world problems. Titles in Barronâ??s Painless Series are written especially for middle school and high school students who are having a difficult time with a specific subject. In many cases, a student is confused by the subjectâ??s complexity and details. Still other students simply finds a subject uninteresting, an attitude that usually results in lower grades. Painless titles offer informal, student-friendly approaches to each subject, emphasizing interesting details, supplementing the text with amusing insights, and outlining potential pitfalls clearly and step by step. Students begin to understand how disparate details all fit together to form a clear picture. Timelines, ideas for interesting projects, and â??Brain Ticklerâ? quizzes in many of these titles help to take the pain out of study and improve each studentâ??s grades.
