Description: Students will explore the richness of conic sections by building their own physical models and then constructing more flexible models with Sketchpad. Students retain a solid connection with the concrete world while harnessing Sketchpad's ability to explore a whole family of curves with just one construction. The book features over 20 activities and includes a CD-ROM with all the pre-made sketches required for the activities, plus many additional useful resources.
