Investigating Geometry Summary

Monday - Friday, July 14 - 18, 2008

This week was spent working on the three final projects:

  1. A middle school project investigating the Pythagorean theorem.

  2. A high school project investigating an inquiry/conjecture/proof based philosophy of teaching Geometry.

  3. A project comparing four popular software packages (Geometer's Sketchpad, Cabri, Geogebra, and Cinderella).

People were focused and working hard, and we spent the last forty-five minutes of Friday's working group sharing the progress of each project with the other groups, including a number of sketchpad documents.
