  GEOMETRY for the high school classroom

The following notes were developed in collaboration with Gary Hamrick, Diane Radin and a group of Austin-Area high school teachers. Funding was provided by the Dana Center (earlier funding from the Exxon Foundation and NSF). They form the basis of a 5-day TexTeam workshop preparing master high school geometry teachers in Texas.

  M333L -- Modern Geometry: a Dynamic Approach

The following notes were developed in collaboration with Debra S. Carney; additional material has been prepared by Altha Rodin and Frank Shirley. They provide a detailed introduction to the use of dynamic geometry software, Geometers Sketchpad, in a sophmore geometry course. The following chapters are consistent with version 4 of Sketchpad. All necessary sketches and scripts are available on request. The notes are all in PDF-format. [Requires Acrobat Reader to view -- Click Here  to download a free copy].
