## Overview

**Every student can succeed**

Elayn Martin-Gay's developmental math program is motivated by her firm belief that every student can succeed. Martin-Gay's focus on the student shapes her clear, accessible writing, inspires her constant pedagogical innovations, and contributes to the popularity and effectiveness of her video resources. ** Geometry** continues her focus on students and what they need to be successful. It was written to provide a solid foundation in Euclidean geometry for students who may not have previous experience in geometry.
