The Geometry Tutor is a 9 hour course spread over 2 DVD disks that will aid the student in the core topics of Geometry. Geometry is frequently challenging for students because every problem involves a figure that the student must use to solve the problem. It is very important early on to master the art of reading the geometric figures properly in order to do wellin this subject. The best way to do this is to introduce the definitions early on and solve problems involving diagrams to give the student this much needed practice.
This DVD contains essential material to do well in Geometry. In addition, the skills learned in this course will aid the student in more advanced areas of math and science. Many of the topics in contained in this DVD series are used in other Math courses, such as the Pythagorean Theorem, triangle similarity, and geometric proofs. These skills are used time again in more advanced courses such as Physics and Calculus. Each topic in this DVD course is introduced by working example problems, beginning with the easier problems and gradually working the harder ones. In this way the student immediately gains confidence in his or her abilities and improves homework and exam taking skills.
How are the MathTutorDVD.com line of DVDs different from others?
The answer is simple. Most math instruction involves a lengthy discussion of the abstract theory behind the Math before instructing the student in how to solve problems. While there are some merits to this style, in the vast majority of the cases the student quickly gets bored and frustrated by the time he or she starts to solve the problems. This DVD, in contrast, teaches all of the concepts by working fully narrated problems step-by-step, which is a much more engaging way to learn.
Exceptional value and affordability.
MathTutorDVD.com believes in providing value for our customers. This is a 9 Hour DVD course. We could have easily split this content into many DVD courses each costing the same price but instead chose to keep the cost down so that this content is affordable to all.
What is our teaching style like?
All topics on this DVD are taught by working example problems. There are no traditional lectures of background material that won't help you solve problems and improve your skills. We believe in teaching-by-doing and that is what you will receive by watching this DVD. Geometric proofs is explained, for example, by working many problems in step-by-step detail. We begin with the easier problems and work our way up to the harder problems. The student immediately gains confidence, does not get bored, and quickly feels like he or she can conquer the material. This method is extremely powerful and has proven itself time and again. Perhaps most importantly, problem solving skills are honed early on that will help with homework and taking exams even after watching the very first lesson.
