Geometry is one of the most visual courses in high school mathematics. Ruler and compass constructions are the backbone of this visual presentation. At last, technology has caught up to the ruler and compass! The Geometer's Sketchpad is an electronic ruler and compass for today's technological classroom.
This module is designed as an interactive tutorial on how to use the Geometer's Sketchpad software, and an introduction to how this application can be used to teach geometry and to produce classroom resources with plane geometry components.
Module 9, Dynamic Geometry With Geometer's Sketchpad, proceeds much further with the instructional uses of this remarkable software.
