Summary

From two authors who embrace technology in the classroom and value the role of collaborative learning comes College Geometry Using The Geometer's Sketchpad. The book's truly discovery-based approach guides readers to learn geometry through explorations of topics ranging from triangles and circles to transformational, taxicab, and hyperbolic geometries.
