designing downloadable materials for teachers, parents and children

I am the author of 'Geometry Through Art', a site hosted by The Math Forum. I am in the process of updating the materials currently at this site, preparing new topics and creating downloadable graphics in formats that are different form that now in use at the site.

I'd like to entail ways of making the resource materials more easily accessible for downloading and printing out. To do this, I'm providing GIFs and PDF's. This will augment the Geometer's Sketchpad which requires the visitor to make a purchase in order to retrieve and use.
I believe GIFs can deliver the graphics and can be more readily retrieved and printed out.

I am proposing to post PDF's for articles having both text and illustrations. The Adobe Acrobat Reader software is much more prevalent among teachers, parents and students than is Geometer's Sketchpad.

Your ideas and suggestions as to how best to proceed with my project would be very much appreciated.

PS. I also am looking for help in critiquing these newly added materials and scenarios. Send me your name and e-mail address with your request to preview copies when and as they become available.
