How is visualization essential to the study of Geometry?

How do I build a vocabulary to increase my understanding of the subject of Geometry?

In this unit, we learn all of the crucial vocabulary needed to master Geometry. Instead of students just "copying" definitions out of a book, you will write your own definitions! Topics include lines, angles, polygons, triangles, quadrilaterals, and circles. As you go, practice your mastery of these definitions by clicking on these vocabulary review games that I designed especially for you!
