Materials include course syllabi, essay ideas and sample essays, and instructional units. Courses on Computers & Algorithms and Problem Solving in Mathematics Education include libraries of investigations created using The Geometer's Sketchpad. Graphically illustrated math papers explore such topics as: - Ratio of areas of two squares - Capturing Area and A Solution - Curve Building; Orthotravels - Tangents Problem - Explorations with Heron's Formula - Triangle Ratios Problem (Ceva's Theorem) - Witch of Agnesi A small library of GSP lessons with hints on construction is also available to download or view if your browser is configured to use Sketchpad as a helper application.
