|The Geometer's Sketchpad (GSP) is a powerful tool for discovering geometric properties. The program contains a ruler, a protractor, a calculator, and a simple word processor, in addition to graphing possibilities for the Cartesian plane. The activities illustrated are samples of those used in Lower and Middle School mathematics classes at Georgetown Day School: lines, rays, and segments; acute, obtuse, and straight angles; area and perimeter; degrees in a triangle; circles; degrees in a quadrilateral; sum of the interior angles of a polygon; similar triangles; transformations.|
