Hi, Mathnasium. I did really well in Algebra 1, and I really liked it. But now that I'm in Geometry, I'm struggling to understand it. It almost feels like a foreign language. Do some people just not get Geometry? Is it supposed to seem different than regular math? And what can I do so that it makes more sense to me?
Thanks for the question, Kira. Let us start by saying that your concern is not uncommon; unfortunately, there is a misconception that students who do well in Algebra will not do well in Geometry and vice versa. We are here to tell you that is not the case. You (andstudents everywhere) are capable of "getting" Geometry!
