  3. Geometry Turned On: Dynamic Software in Learning, Teaching, and Research - J. King and D. Schattschneider, Editors
    This book contains twenty-six papers about aspects of dynamic software for geometry. The book does not contain software itself, but this site includes downloadable files for many of the papers in the book. For a discussion of what the book is about, see the Preface: Making Geometry Dynamic. Dynamic geometry is active, exploratory geometry carried out with interactive computer software. The papers in this volume are intended to convince readers that dynamic geometry is full of action, energy, and even hype - the hype of excited individuals (students, teachers, researchers) who can't help but communicate their enthusiasm as they discuss the many implications of the software. more>>
