My Jacobs - GSP Project

I am using the textbook Geometry: Seeing, Doing, Understanding (Third Edition) by Harold R. Jacobs in my course for prospective middle school math teachers. I love many things about this book, but I also am a strong believer in having my students use Geometer's Sketchpad (GSP) software. Jacobs has lots of hands-on work, but he made a decision not to use geometry software, so I have been supplementing his book with Sketchpad work. Mostly, I have taken a number of exercises from Jacobs and made very similar Sketchpad exercises out of them.

So far, I have written out seven pages of exercises, and I imagine I will end up with 20 - 30 pages. I key each of my exercise sets to section of Jacobs. I intend to class-test my exercises, and once they are complete to post them on Scribd. In the meantime, I am happy to send my work-in-progress to anyone who wants to send me an email for it. My address is, and I appreciate feedback.
