More Information on this Folder

Geometry students learn not just about circles, squares, solids, lines and points, but also logic, rational thinking, axioms and theorems. Students who are able to follow a progression of logical statements, reasoning from specifics to generalized statements, are able to take this process into many other areas of life.
