The subject of geometry has to do with the size, shape and relative positions of figures and their properties in space. There is a lot to memorize in high school geometry in order to do well on your exams. Once you have memorized all the material you need for the test, you must be able to apply that knowledge and analytically solve the homework or test problem. Geometry is a unique subject in high school because this will probably be the first time you will be dealing with proofs. Our Los Angeles Tutors have a lot of experience working with geometry students and we’re confident that we’ll be able to teach our students how to approach proofs and be successful. In addition to proofs, students will have to be able to manipulate shapes and figures in order to solve more complicated geometry problems. We have provided many helpful geometry formulas below to help with the process of learning the subject. In some cases, teachers allow their students to come to exams with formula sheets. Regardless of your teachers philosophy about the memorization of formulas, it’s important to fully understand what the formulas mean and when to use them. Make sure to read your geometry question carefully to make sure you’re providing the answer the question is asking for. There may be many unknowns in your question so don’t make the mistake of giving the answer to the wrong unknown. Below the list of formulas, you’ll find resourceful website links that can be used as a supplement to your lectures and book. Los Angeles Tutor has a lot of experience with the subtleties of Geometry and we can help with any issues you are having.
