**EdX INTRODUCTION TO GEOMETRY**

**Textbook:** None, all materials are online

**Notes**: This is a 14-week self-paced course covering all high school Geometry topics. Each lesson is presented via a digital whiteboard and is followed by a problem set. The lessons are interactive and the student chooses a unique path through the lesson depending on the amount of review and explanation they need. The problem set is adaptive and must be mastered for credit. You can do more problems after you've mastered the topic. But you can pass a topic and move on without sufficient review for mastery, and there are no homework, tests, etc. This is a fantastic teaching tool but you would want a student using other material for additional practice, testing, etc. Great Pre-Geometry course for a middle grader on its own, or pair with a textbook for a full high school credit.

**Online Class?** Yes, with certificate upon completion

__SOLOMONOVICH - EUCLIDEAN GEOMETRY: A FIRST COURSE__

**Textbook: **Euclidean Geometry: A First Course

**Note: **From RaptorDad (post #61) -- In the pre-AoPS days, Charon/Adrian and Myrtle thought it was as good or better than Kiselev. Hartshorne is Mathwonk's preferred text for interpreting Euclid and Hartshorne has a glowing recommendation on the back cover(viewable on Amazon). I like all sorts of older texts, but this one is rarely both in print and has an instructors manual.
