The GeometricTransformations
Many times in mathematics and in geometry in particular,
visualization of the concepts that are being taught is difficult for
students. This problem can be avoided with the use of a tool such as
Geometers Sketchpad. One of the best attributes of this program is that it is not a drill and practice program, but instead it requires the
students further develop their understanding of mathematical concepts. This lesson was designed to help make the concepts of translations, ro
