|A guide to the various geometry topics on Stothers' pages, including Euclidean, affine, projective, inversive, and hyperbolic geometries, and the Klein View of geometry. These pages began as an experiment in teaching projective conics using Cabri to provide the visualizations (topics covered: geometric and algebraic approaches to poles, polars, and duality; tangents; and conics as sections of cones). In addition, there are Cabri modules to illustrate several classical conics theorems, including the theorems of Desargues, La Hire, Pappus, Brianchon and Pascal. The modules cover construction, tangents, and duality.|
