## Main Question or Discussion Point

Hello everyone,

I am having a considerable amount of trouble in my high school geometry class.... first let me explain.

My teacher went on sabbatical last year and decided to make his own text. His text is alright, but lacks some explanation I feel, I need to SEE it done well before I can do it well, and I sometimes find his lectures hard to follow. His method of teaching is very different from most geometry textbooks I have seen (we are extremely proof heavy).... and I have never had issues with Math before this....

Also, his homework is exceedingly difficult for stuff I know I could understand if given a better way of handling it (I need to spend 1-2 hours a night on just geometry)... but I don't know how to considering the text he made is very sporadic in what it covers (we jump from Lobachevsky geometry to trig to sequences etc.)....

I currently have a low B in the class, meanwhile I have high A's in all of the other courses I am taking... I try hard it is just I feel very defeated while working on the problems and it is irking me a lot considering I like Math and I think/hope I have a decent aptitude for it.... I am just lost on what to do (I have talked to him and my counseler and they were of little help...)
