Gerard Venema on Exploring Advanced Euclidean Geometry with GeoGebra

Listen to Gerard Venema discuss his latest book, Exploring Advanced Euclidean Geometry with GeoGebra.

Interview with Gerard Venema (mp3)

This book provides an inquiry-based introduction to advanced Euclidean geometry. It utilizes dynamic geometry software, specifically GeoGebra, to explore the statements and proofs of many of the most interesting theorems in the subject. Topics covered include triangle centers, inscribed, circumscribed, and escribed circles, medial and orthic triangles, the nine-point circle, duality, and the theorems of Ceva and Menelaus, as well as numerous applications of those theorems. The final chapter explores constructions in the Poincaré disk model for hyperbolic geometry.
