STUDENT TESTED AND APPROVED!

Do you suffer from math anxiety? Do theorems, figures, and angles leave your head spinning? If so, you are like hundereds of thousands of other sutdents who face math­­especially, geometry­­with fear.

Luckily, there is a cure: Bob Miller's Clueless series!

Like the teacher you always wished you had (but never thought existed), Bob Miller brings a combinatin of knowledge, empathy, and fun to the often-troubling subject of geometry. He breaks down the learning process in an easy, nontechnical way and builds it up again using his own unique methods. "Basically, the Clueless books are my ntes. Exactly the way I teach: friendly, clear...with some humore and plenty of emotion!"

Meant to bridge the gulf between the student, the textbook, and the teacher, Geometry for the Clueless is packed with all the information you need to conquer geometry. This intensive study guide gives you:

  • Anxiety-reducing features on every page
  • Easy-to-grasp methods that make geometry understandable
  • Full explanations of basic principles to make hard problems easy
  • Quick tips for solving difficult problems
  • Bite-sized math portions that fit short study sessions (and short attention spans)

"I am always delighted when a student tells me that he or she hated math...but taking a class with me has made math understandble...even enjoyable," says Bob. Now it's your turn. Sharpen your #2 pencils, and let Bob Miller show you how to never be clueless again!

Bob Miller clearly loves math. Bob Miller clearly loves teaching. Bob Miller clearly loves teaching math. I clearly loved Bob Miller's enthusiasm and his hope that I, the reader, would enjoy math. This book is wonderfully sectioned into chapters even I could understand, and everything is spelled out and illustrated. But geometry and I will never be bedfellows. We will never attend the races together, we will never croon "True Love" on a yacht, and we will never enjoy the joint adventure of finding vinyl LPs of Dick Van Dyke crooning.

But Mr. Miller, you sure make it fun to read.
