Triangles are one of the most familiar shapes in the world. As simple as a triangle is, there are several different kinds of triangles and they have different properties. We will also look at the interior, the exterior, as well as the triangle itself.

In this video you will learn all about each type of triangle. You will learn about their angles and their sides and the relationships between sides and angles. Make sure you commit all definitions to memory so when you need to write a proof involving a triangle, you will have all the tools you need.

Enjoy this lesson. It's very straightforward and not difficult at all. Just get all the details and terminology! Success is in the details!

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...
