Some Interesting Geometry Sites
annotated bibliography of more than 200 books,
maintained by David Henderson at Cornell
- For those interested in teaching (or looking for
information related to their projects and high school
teaching, there is a new NCTM site, including the Mathematics Teacher.
- A resource on the integration of geometry into
mathematics teaching is the
Connected Mathematics project
Math Forum (formerly the Geometry Forum) at
http://www.forum.swarthmore.edu/. This has a great deal of
information on many areas of math, including high school teaching.
- This site is also host to several
geometry related lists, including geometry-pre-college
(for people interested in K-12 geometry teaching).
Geometry Forum Newsgroups page
for archives and information on subscribing.
This is a good source of information on teaching geometry
Geometry page at the Math Forum is particularly nice. It may be a good source of information for projects etc.
- The resources of the Geometry Center include downloadable software for
tiling the plane, or the sphere, or the heyperbolic plane.
- A site with
Euclid's Elements, both text and nice 'draggable'
diagrams (if you have a reader which is Java enabled).
- A site on
polyhedra - great ideas for 'model building'
projects and 3-D geometry.
- A site with information on the
Penrose 'Aperiodic Tilings' related to quasicrystals.
A second site gives a
Penrose Java Applet for playing with these tilings
- The GEOMETRY JUNKYARD from David Eppstein, Theory Group, ICS, UC Irvine is a collection of Usenet clippings, Web pointers, lecture
notes, research excerpts, papers, abstracts, programs,
problems, and other material related to discrete and
computational geometry - some serious and much also
A related site devoted more to applications is
Geometry in Action
- The english version of the dynamic geometry software EUKLID
is available at the
- Here is a site about
Diagrammatic Reasoning on the general
area of visualization and visual reasoning.
- Here is another site with abstracts of related papers
at an recent workshop .
- an illusions site with a large collection of visual illusions,
how they work, possible projects etc
- information on all the
convex uniform polychora (singular:
polychoron--any four-dimensional polytope)
- a theorem prover which is the core of a french dynamic
geometry software Windows demo version) . To read articles about experiments in classrooms with this software
you can directly go to :
It's all in french
- Here is a site on
The Fourth Dimension with a vairety of links, puzzles etc.
- Here is a site with information on a one day symposium
Exploring New Frontiers in Geometry:
in the World Around Us and in Our
Classrooms at the AAAS (American Association for the
Advancement of Science) 150th anniversary celebration Annual Meeting and Science Innovation
Exposition in Philadelphia, February 12-17, 1998.
There is a page of information about some
projects in Math 3050: Introduction to Geometries.
- A site with general information on
how to cope with
