Below are write-ups of different investigations I have done. I have used Graphing Calculator, Geometer's Sketch Pad, and Microsoft Excel to create the images you see throughout the investigations. The write-ups demonstrate different ways to incorporate this technology into a classroom discussion. Many of the write-ups encourage you to continue your own investigation of the topic. With a few of the topics, you must have Geometer's Sketch Pad to open up a copy of the image to manipulate yourself, but there are pictures of everything to at least view without the program. If you have any suggestions, please feel free to email me at the address at the top of the page. Enjoy!
