An Introduction to Geometers Sketchpad This workbook is designed to introduce elementary school and middle school teachers to Geometer’s Sketchpad. The Sketchpad, is a construction tablet on which one draws models of geometric shapes, transforms them, colors them, measures them, and animates them.

An Introduction to Geometer’s Sketchpad Geometer’s Sketchpad is an interactive geometry software program used to explore Euclidean and non-Euclidean geometry.

We will be working with this software throughout the semester, and at the end of the semester you will be presenting a group project using Geometer’s Size: KB. Introduction to the Geometer’s Sketchpad This is the first part of the Geometer’s Sketchpad Essentials Series.

In this post, we will learnabout Geometer’s Sketchpad and its environment before we use the software. Geometer’s Sketchpad (GSP) is a commercial geometry software created my Nicolas Jackiw in the s. Introduction to Geometer's Sketchpad In this assignment we will learn how to use the program Geometer's Sketchpad.

This program is very useful for learning about geometry. We will discover several geometric facts this semester through its use. Here are several tasks to perform in Geometer's Sketchpad. The first chapter of his book Calculus: Concepts and Applications (Key Curriculum Press, ) provides an introduction to the big ideas that students will study throughout the year in calculus, and these Sketchpad activities are adapted from the lessons in that chapter.

The Geometer's Sketchpad Workshop Guide This booklet is designed as a handout for a workshop with The Geometer's Sketchpad or for use in evaluating the program for possible purchase.

Tour 1: Constructing a Square. The Geometer's Sketchpad offers five different tools to create geometric shapes to help you visualize math problems. Then, you can measure the angles and midpoints of the shapes to solve or create Subcategory: Math Software.

The Geometer’s Sketchpad has its roots in educational research—it began as an NSF-funded research project at Swarthmore College. Read more about Sketchpad’s origins and its development over time, read one of the articles below, or see a full bibliography of publications related to Sketchpad.

The book would also provide an excellent, self-study guide for high school students who are interested in a gentle guide to mathematics outside the standard high school: algebra, plane geometry, and pre-calculus curriculum/5(8).

From two authors who embrace technology in the classroom and worth the position of collaborative studying comes College Geometry Using The Geometer's Sketchpad, a book that’s perfect for geometry programs for each arithmetic and math schooling majors.

• Exploring Algebra with The Geometer’s Sketchpad by Chanan, Bergofsky, and Bennett (, Key Curriculum Press) Participants are not required to purchase these books or any other materials (other than The Geometer’s Sketchpad software) in order to take this Size: 94KB.

The more you do, the easier you will find labs using Sketchpad. At the very least, learn to do all of the items on the following list of basic Sketchpad commands: Construct points, segments, lines, circles.

Label an object. Change the name of the object. Construct a segment, line, or ray through two specified points. Introduction to The Geometer’s Sketchpad The Geometer’s Sketchpad® (GSP) is dynamic geometry software useful for exploring plane geometry, algebra, calculus, statistics, and other branches of mathematics.

It is possible to simulate three-dimensional geometry as well. Thousands of sketches are available on the Internet, most of them Size: KB. Dynamic Geometer's Sketchpad Brief Introduction Geoemter's Sketchpad is a dynamic geometrical software, letting teachers use computers to demonstrate and visualize mathematics concepts to students.

All written material will be Sketchpad activities provided as PDFs, primarily from these books: • Exploring Algebra 1 with The Geometer’s Sketchpad by Kunkel, Chanan, and Steketee (, Key Curriculum Press) • Exploring Algebra 2 with The Geometer’s Sketchpad by Kunkel, Chanan, and Steketee (, Key Curriculum Press).

An Introduction to Geometer’s Sketchpad In this lesson you will learn some of the basic features of Geometer’s Sketchpad. In particular you will learn how to draw points, circles, line segments, rays, and lines. The Measure menu will be also be explored, in-cluding how to measure angles, lengths, perimeter, and also use the GeometerFile Size: KB.

The is a Geometer's Sketchpad Lab that leads students throught the construction of the medians of a triangle and the centroid. The lab has them investigate the relationship of the segments of the median and finishes with showing the median divides a triangle into 2 triangles of equal area.
