Once you the basics of geometric inversion, you can use this knowledge in some interesting places. The Applications Menu on the previous page contains links to files created with Geometer's Sketchpad. These files give the user an overview of some situations where the geometry of inversion can be applied. By clicking on the page tabs at the bottom of each sketch, the user can view steps that could be taken to arrive at a solution for each application. These sketches are intended to be used as guides for the teacher in discussing each application.
Note that applications listed later in the sequence may depend upon knowledge gleaned from earlier ones.
