Introduction
to Geometer's Sketchpad

The
lessons are an introduction to use of Geometers Sketchpad (GSP). Each
of the lessons is a construction of a geometric figure. The lessons
include voice and subtitles describing how the construction is made. We
suggest you use the pause bar as frequently as needed. Once you have
understood the lesson try these sketches yourself, thinking about why
the sketches work. You may want to consult the tutorial that
accompanies GSP.

This
website
was designed specifically for the Reconceptualizing
Mathematics
textbook, published by W. H. Freeman &
Company,
but it is available for use by any prospective or practicing teacher of
K-8 mathematics.
