# Should students take a stand-alone geometry course?

Shormann Interactive Algebra 1 & 2 and Saxon Algebra 2 and Advanced Math (first 40 lessons) teach all the concepts required to earn 1 Geometry credit. Shormann Interactive teaches all the geometry required to excel on the newly redesigned PSAT and SAT, as well as the ACT. Therefore, taking a separate geometry course is not only redundant, it can cause students to lose fluency in algebraic skills. This makes Algebra 2 and upper-level math courses more difficult and negatively affects standardized test scores.
