Dear Gene and Geometers:
I read your article with great interest. I would like to add some reasons to use the Geometry Forum.
discover different approaches to introducing and/or developing concepts contribute and/or get help with interesting problems to reinforce concepts what are teachers doing with proofs? any strong feelings out there? are other geometries being taught anywhere(non Euclidean)? are we interested in content only or is form important as well? what should a student (be able to do when he completes a geometry course? should there be minimum essentials?
I would be interested in comments from all.
