The AskDrCallahan geometry video course is the perfect tool for homeschool or other self-driven students to cover high school geometry. The course provides a solution for parents and students looking for a solution to learning geometry and preparing them for algebra II and trigonometry, the ACT, SAT, and future math success. The student is guided through the Geometry: Seeing, Doing, Understanding textbook by Harold Jacobs with video lessons covering each topic and working examples as needed.
Course includes everything needed for mom and student alike. The course is taught in a light hearted style, focused on understanding the concepts of geometry and not a ton of math-speak.
