Many high school math students fear geometry due to its heavy focus on logic and reasoning rather than more straightforward mathematical concepts. The introduction of geometry shapes as mathematical entities is also unfamiliar territory for most students fresh out of algebra classes, making geometry a challenging adjustment.

We’ve outlined a few tips below which can help students to tackle their fears and gain confidence in the study of geometry instead of just running in circles. Puns aside, let’s take a look!

**Create a geometry formula sheet.**

Part of the reason why geometry is so daunting for some students is because of the large number of formulas that require memorization. As students solve problems in class and at home, it is invaluable to have a reference sheet in order to quickly and methodically find the necessary formulas.

While numerous premade formula sheets exist online, we would argue that it’s more beneficial for a student to make their own formula sheet. The act of writing down these formulas and processing their importance can’t be overstated.
