This lesson is part of the following series:

Basic Beginning Algebra and Geometry Series (30 lessons, $4.95)
Geometry Help (19 lessons, $2.97)

Well, this is where you start in Geometry. You're going to learn a lot more about a point, a line, and a plane than you can imagine. Actually it is impossible to "define" these terms so we will just describe them and make sure you know all about them.

If I can find a "Pointalism" picture from one of my students, I will post it here...just for fun.

Seriously, all geometric figures are made up of points. We connect points to form shapes of all kinds. So without points, lines, and planes Geometry would not exist.

Stick with me and you'll be off to a good start!

Welcome! I'm so glad you are here! Math help is here for you when you need it.

I believe that using these Algebra and Geometry videos will help you understand the basics of Algebra and Geometry.

Some students try very hard and still struggle to pass math. They start off strong but things quickly begin to fall apart. That happens as soon as the student becomes lost. Teenagers who find themselves in this position often let it "get away from them" before they seek help. Because Math is always a class of stepping stones, it rarely gets better without help.

I urge you to seek help from your child's teacher first. Always. These Algebra and Geometry videos can help too. You can watch...

I am a teacher and I bought these videos so my students could use them to catch up or review when they are absent. I could make the videos myself but I don't have time and I like these. I know Sandra, and her teaching style is very much like mine so it works for me and my students. So glad to have these. I'll rate each video as I go through them.
