College Geometry Using GeoGebra

"Several years ago, we co-authored the text College Geometry using The Geometer's Sketchpad®. In the time since then, friends and colleagues have expressed substantial interest in using our course materials with an alternative software package, GeoGebra®. Indeed, some reported to us that they have used the Sketchpad book with GeoGebra and have experienced good success. Spurred on by those reports, we began experimenting ourselves with this other option for geometry software. This new text is the result of our course experiences with GeoGebra. Of course, there are differences in commands and tools between the two software packages. Those differences imposed frequent re-wording and revising of the computer investigations. Further, the algebraic presentation used by GeoGebra required us to re-think many of the investigations to encourage students to grapple with the geometric content. The activities have been re-written to match GeoGebra, as have the portions of the text that discuss the specific software. However, the geometric content remains the same as our earlier text. We hope this new version of College Geometry will support students and instructors who desire a pedagogy that incorporates technology in an active, exploratory classroom"-- Provided by publisher.
