Hi,
I start student teaching in August. I will be teaching High School Geometry. Given that it has been 9 years since I took geometry does anyone have a suggestion for a good textbook that I could use to refresh?
The only good textbooks I know are in french, but, if you went through university maths to complete your diploma, I think only flipping a few pages in the textbook you will be using (that will probably be given before the year starts, at the same time with the course program) will be enough to refresh the whole ball of wax.
I don't think high school geometry can be permanently forgotten, especially if you majored in maths.
I have this book at home and it is wonderful, although in french: Livre Mathematiques mise a niveau - J. Lapointe, M. Sainte-Marie - - Librairie Eyrolles
I definitely know more geometry in general than the high school level students. But my issue is that college level geometry was extremely different from what I remember in high school. It has been almost 10 years or so since I took high school geometry. That is why I am trying to find a book.
In that case, you will not be able to plan lessons on the assumption that students will have a copy of the textbook ..... I'd suggest that this is probably a bigger thing for you to be thinking about and planning for ....
Go to the syllabus documents and review what material the students have to learn. Then go to a library and find books that cover that meterial.
