Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This dynamic construction and exploration tool enables students to explore and understand mathematics in ways that are simply not possible with traditional tools--or with other mathematics software programs. The Geometer's Sketchpad Student Bundle Package brings a powerful dimension to the study of mathematics. With Sketchpad, students can construct an object and then explore its mathematical properties by dragging the object with the mouse. All mathematical relationships are preserved, allowing students to examine an entire set of similar cases in a matter of seconds, leading them by natural course to generalizations. Sketchpad encourages a process of discovery in which students first visualize and analyze a problem and then make conjectures before attempting a proof.The Geometer's Sketchpad and Sketchpad are registered trademarks of Key Curriculum Press.
