Discovering Geometry, Fifth Edition

Grade Levels: High School


Discovering Geometry helps students develop inductive and deductive reasoning skills by creating conjectures, and reporting and justifying conclusions as they explore the principles of geometry. Congruence, similarity, and symmetry are studied from the perspective of geometric transformation to create connections within the mathematics.

Written to the Common Core State Standards using a student-centered, discovery-based pedagogy, Discovering Geometry helps students become mathematically fluent, prepared for future study, and career-ready.

Discovering Geometry Available with Probability

For schools where probability is taught in geometry, a new chapter on Probability is available for the Discovering Geometry text! Lessons include Probability and Outcomes, Probability and Multiple Events, Compound Probability, Independent Events, and Disjoint Events, and Compound Probability. This new chapter incorporates inquiry, problem-solving, and real-world applications to develop the probability concepts. The Probability Chapter can be added to your current ebook and/or provided as a separate print supplement. Order Today!


  • I have been using the Discovering Geometry materials for about 12 years, and I'm a HUGE fan. My students enjoy the investigations and forming the conjectures. The constructivist approach enhances their understanding and learning. When the order of some topics were rearranged in the latest edition, some things don't flow as well (such as covering areas of circles before circumference), but I've made my own adjustments.

  • I really like the way they present the material to the students. Better than most curricula I've seen, they have the students try and figure out the material themselves. When the students do that, they not only understand it better, but retain the information longer and are able to recall it easier. I only wish my students were able to learn their material this way before getting to my class, because it was a tough transition for them to go from the formulas being told to them, to them figuring out the formulas and reasoning behind the formulas themselves.
