All kidding aside, that is a fundamental point. Do not trust your memory, even if it is great. Write your thoughts down when doing math. Keep good, readable notes!

]]>I'll make sure to write it all down.

]]>I recovered a lot of focus I was missing before.

Sounds like you are pumping up some neurons. But there is a danger, the brain only has a finite capacity. If you stuff too much geometry in their you could replace vital information.

That happened to me, I woke one day and could not even remember how many kids Brad and Angelina have. Or which NBA player has been arrested the most times or how to spell Rihanna. I broke out in a cold sweat and after many months of therapy they managed to put that vital information back in there. So write all that stuff down now.

]]>Good luck! Hope it inspires you to love math.

]]>Geometry proofs.

(i) Make a good diagram.

Take care you don't make it so it is a special case ( eg. make an angle look like 90 when it need not be)

(ii) Say what you are proving and what you are given.

(iii) When you take a step in the 'proof', state, in brackets, why it is true. (eg. angle sum of triangle = 180)

(iv) When you reach the end, shout 'Eureka!' and write **QED** in big bold letters.

Or (iv) Post the problem, and how far you have got, to 'Help Me !' because some of us enjoy trying to help.

]]>They do not get any easier. The better you get at them only makes you work on harder ones, so you will always be stumped. Keep persisting!

]]>I cannot answer that for you. Once you start to progress a little post your questions here and I will try to help. Or someone else will. Once you show what you understand it will be easier to recommend something.

]]>Have a look here to give you some background.

Welcome to the forum.

]]>Hi Otsdarva;

Do you have any questions that you would like to post? You know a geometry problem.

I just want to start geometry from the ground up, if you catch my drift.

Thanks bob bundy
