Common Questions About This Product
Q: How is it different from the Enhanced Teacher’s Guide for Geometry ISBN: 978-0716756071 or Answers to Exercises for Geometry by Harold Jacobs ISBN: 978-1-61999-116-3?
A: The book has gone through reprints – but the solutions remain the same so either you have will work for the course and with the DVDs or online videos.
Q: Are all of the problems answered in detail, or is only the answer given?
A: The answers are given in all the detail needed. There are a few cases where answers like “9” are given because the problem asks the students to count. Sometimes that simple answer needs more explaining. In those cases, you can check to see if we have added detail on our support page or by contacting us at email@example.com.

Review from Patty Roberts (Sent to us in email on August 5, 2015.)
“This Answer Key to Geometry is exactly what I’ve been looking for! All four of our children used Jacobs Geometry, but with our youngest, because our original answer book was SO thick and cumbersome – and because we never used all those reams of examples and teaching tips, and because I knew we’d never use the again, and to make it easier to transport – I ended up slicing out the few pages we were actually needing at any given time, thus completely destroying the answer book. However, I and two of my children had loved Jacobs, and I decided to keep the textbook because it is truly wonderful. The lonely text sat there looking at me, and I thought, “This book is really no good without the answers, but I do NOT want to buy another copy of that thick, bulky answer book, most of which is useless to me.” Over time, I kept looking for a copy that had only the answers, and here I finally found it! It is absolutely perfect and will be saved as part of a treasured curriculum. Maybe someday my grandkids will enjoy it, too.”
