Subject: Re: Geometry

I understand your frustration.  You did not mention the textbook or
curriculum that you follow currently.  I have several suggestions for you:

1) Try looking at a textbook called "Discovering Geometry" by Key Curriculum


This textbook, as the name implies, encourages discovery and team work, and
is quit different from a traditional geometry textbook.

2) Try incorporating Geometer's Sketchpad in your curriculum. With this
program, students can draw an object, then experience its dynamic aspects by
dragging the object with the mouse.


3) Encourage students to participate in on-line geometry projects such as
the Math Forum's Geometry Problem of the Week.  Each week a Geometry problem
is presented.  Students have one week to email their answers to the mentors,
which in turn write back to the student.


4)  Try looking at other sites suggested by the Internet Math Library --
Geometry section located at:


Hope these links are a useful start in your search.
