Head First 2D Geometry
By Lindsey Fallow, Dawn Griffiths
Having trouble with geometry? Do Pi, the Pythagorean Theorem, and angle calculations just make your head spin? Relax.

Through entertaining stories and practical examples, you'll go beyond boring problems and actually use what you learn to make real-life decisions.

Learn the basic tools and start writing code in the programming languages that interest you, and get a better understanding of what software can (and cannot) do.
