Sullivan, Burgiel, Osinga; The Geometry Center, Univ. of Minnesota  
From the University of Minnesota's course in Computational Methods in Elementary Geometry, materials developed at the Geometry Center for teaching pre and inservice teachers of highschool geometry interested in using technology in their classrooms. Internet skills: introduction to the Web, technical information; Classical Geometry: Introductory Questions for Geometer's Sketchpad; Monge's Theorem (Sketchpad lab); Peaucellier's Linkage (a simple toy). A Dynamical Systems lab uses Java applets; Symmetry and Patterns offers units on Introduction to Symmetries, Wallpaper patterns, and Orbifolds. With appendices (materials used in class, videotapes shown in the course); Software; and student projects: Napoleon's Theorem, Tessellations, the Golden Rectangle, Fibonacci Numbers, a Slice of Pi, Pascal, and Conjectures in Geometry. Most projects include several Geometer's Sketchpad sketches.
