Tom: I teach an honors geometry course and use the McDougal Littell new edition called Geometry for Enjoyment and Challenge. The book contains 2column proofs along with paragraph proofs and some flow proofs. It also has a variety of problems from easy to very challenging. My math department has been extremely happy with the book, and we continue to teach proofs but are also attempting to do more constructions and real life problems. The applied math program developed by Cord has some excellent problems for geometry and has a few new geometry units, so we also use these in our geometry classes as a supplement.
