Next children learn the concepts of parallel lines and lines that are at a right angle (perpendicular lines). The book also has beginner lessons about symmetry, area, perimeter, and solids.

After studying these early geometry lessons, you can continue the study of geometry with Math Mammoth Geometry 1 book. In it, children will learn to classify figures (during grades 4-6) according to their sides and angles, and learn much more about area, perimeter, and volume.
