Advanced Euclidean Geometry: Excursions for Secondary Teachers and Students
June 2008, ©2002
Advanced Euclidean Geometry fills this void by providing
a thorough review of the essentials of the high school geometry
course and then expanding those concepts to advanced Euclidean
geometry, to give teachers more confidence in guiding student
explorations and questions. The text contains hundreds of
illustrations created in The Geometer’s Sketchpad
Dynamic Geometry® software, and it is packaged with a CD-ROM
(for Windows®/Macintosh® formats) containing over 100
interactive sketches using Sketchpad™ (assumes that
the user has access to the program).

- First chapter includes brief, quick review of the essentials of basic high school geometry.
Remainder of text digs more deeply into advanced Euclidian Geometry (Euclidian geometries developed in the 19th and 20th centuries), which gives high school teachers a deeper understanding beyond the course they teach.
Nearly 100 illustrations created with The Geometer’s Sketchpad.
Student CD included with the text that has interactive versions of selected illustrations from the text so students can manipulate the sketches in order to see how geometric properties hold true.
