An increased understanding of algebraic concepts will result in thorough preparation for further study in mathematics.
Basic concepts of angles and degrees, subsets, area, volume, and symmetry as well as more complex proofs and theorems are reviewed step-by-step. Brief introductions and photographs provide an element of real-world practicality while biblically based material is used to shed light on the purpose of geometry.
