  • http://www.keypress.com/catalog/products/software/Prod_GSPModules.html The Geometer's Sketchpad Add-on Curriculum Modules (each module comes with a cd containing sketches) Available in Version 4:
    1. Exploring Algebra with The Geometer's Sketchpad
    2. Exploring Calculus with The Geometer's Sketchpad
              Math & Science Education Center has a copy that can be checked out.
    3. Exploring Conic Sections with The Geometer's Sketchpad
             I have a copy.
    4. 101 Project Ideas, Learning Guide, Reference Manual, and the cd of the software.
             I have a copy. The license says that we may "Use or install the Software on the personal computers of faculty as long as the Software is used solely for preparation for instruction." Sketchpad 4 will be installed on the server this summer.
    5. Other books that are listed on the website are being modified for version 4.

    The following are Sketchpad 3 activities. With slight modifications, they can still be used in Sketchpad 4. As far as I can tell from searching, because the software is so new, there are very few resources (except for those mentioned above) that make full use of Sketchpad 4.
