Greetings, Welcome to the Modern Geometry Technology
Resources Center. Modern
Geometry makes use of a variety of modeling technologies to promote
concept development and engage students in meaningful mathematical
tasks. Each of the figures pictured below is a link to a report created by one or more of my
students in recent years. I recommend
that you review the reports and think about the integration of mathematical
concepts, procedures, applications, communications, and technologies seen
there. If you like what you see, then
I invite you to take advantage of these technologies yourself. When you do, I believe that you will find
this approach to mathematics education exciting, empowering, and
rewarding. Best wishes, David

About this Product Modern Geometry provides a
historically grounded, applications oriented, technology rich survey of
Euclidean, hyperbolic, transformation, fractal, and projective geometry. With only a few exceptions, the modeling
tools and data sets described in the text are available on the Modern
Geometry CDROM or via the WWW.
Using these Technology Resources, you may investigate Euclidean
constructions like the ninepointcircle, explore hyperbolic space, create
your own fractals, measure and model landscapes features using remote sensing
data, and design realistic architectural structures. Doing so will deepen your understanding of
and appreciation for the concepts, procedures, and applications presented in
the text. Note:
No warranty is stated or implied relative to the performance of any of
the Modern Geometry Technology Resources on any computer or computer
network. Any problems or expenses
that arise as a consequence using the Modern Geometry Technology Resources
are strictly the responsibility of the user.
