You may be comfortable with conventional two-dimensional geometry, but what about 3D geometry? Do spheres, polygons, and the Pythagorean equation just make you dizzy? With Head First 3D Geometry, you'll learn how to calculate the volume of 3D shapes, use algebra as a shortcut for geometric calculations, and take the mystery out of triangles with trigonometry -- and believe it or not, it's fun stuff.
You'll go beyond boring problems with entertaining stories and practical examples from the world around you. And you'll actually use what you learn to make real-life decisions. Let's say you want to start your own custom chocolate shop: how much will you need to spend on ingredients? Learn how to put 3D geometry to work for you, and nail your class exams while you're at it.
We think your time is too valuable to waste struggling with new concepts. Using the latest research in cognitive science and learning theory to craft a multi-sensory learning experience, Head First 3D Geometry uses a visually-rich format designed for the way your brain works, not a text-heavy approach that puts you to sleep.

Lindsey Fallow has spent the past decade exploring science and technology as a writer, software developer, and television personality. Following an undergraduate degree in Manufacturing Engineering, she fronted a science show for 8-12 year-olds on Disney, and went on to become a reporter & Associate Producer for Tomorrow's World (the BBC's #1 prime-time UK science and technology show) from 1998-2002. She's stood on the top of the Golden Gate bridge, fed sharks, filmed brain surgery, flown in military planes, and been bitten by a baby tiger, but is the most excited by far when her 13-year-old stepson 'gets' his homework.
Dawn Griffiths started life as a mathematician at a top UK university. She was awarded a First-Class Honours degree in Mathematics, and was offered a university scholarship to undertake a PhD studying particularly rare breeds of differential equations. She moved away from academia when she realized that people would stop talking to her at parties, and went on to pursue a career in software development instead. She currently combines IT consultancy with writing and mathematics.
When Dawn's not working on Head First books, you'll find her honing her Tai Chi skills, making bobbin lace or cooking nice meals. She hasn't yet mastered the art of doing all three at the same time.
She also enjoys traveling, and spending time with her lovely husband, David.
