Geometer's SketchpadResources
The Geometer's Sketchpad, version 5 has been announced as becoming available in Fall 2009. Already, there are resources posted on the Key site related to that version prior to its release (e.g., a set of videos that overview the whole idea of Dynamic Geometry and Algebra). Most of the resources below are for version 4 of the software and will remain useful for version 5 users, although they may use techniques for which there are more efficient methods in the latest version.
