Harold Jacobs's Geometry created a revolution in the approach to teaching this subject, one that gave rise to many ideas now seen in the NCTM Standards. Since its publication nearly one million students have used this legendary text. Suitable for either classroom use or self-paced study, it uses innovative discussions, cartoons, anecdotes, examples, and exercises that unfailingly capture and hold student interest. This edition is the Jacobs for a new generation. It has all the features that have kept the text in class by itself for nearly 3 decades, all in a thoroughly revised, full-color presentation that shows today's students how fun geometry can be. The text remains proof-based although the presentation is in the less formal paragraph format. The approach focuses on guided discovery to help students develop geometric intuition.

This book introduces future educators and researchers to several different psychological perspectives and uses these perspectives to introduce key issues such as knowledge acquisition and transfer, strategic process, and student motivation. As an editor and reviewer of the top journals in the field, the author is able to present the latest research in language that is accessible and understandable. Unlike other books that are organized around theoretical topics valued by psychologists, it is organized around education problems and issues deemed important by educators.
