PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

After taking my Geometry students to the computer lab to show them how to use Geometer's Sketchpad for about the third time, I realized that they were learning a lot more about the program by just playing around with it, and by trying to get it to do things I hadn't thought of, so I changed my focus the fourth year and thereafter.

Instead of giving them a step-by-step list of instructions (which inevitably failed, since students would click the wrong thing at some point and end up in a place where my carefully-written directions no longer applied), I instead gave them a random checklist for them to go through: it basically gives them the skills they will need for future labs, but in a random way.

Note: for some reason, students crash the software at my site incredibly easily the first time we go to the lab, so I included that as the last item on the checklist! Instead of getting frustrated, my students now see that one as a happy accomplishment. (Of course, I don't announce this to them as a class, but show it to them when it comes up.)

Please download the pdf preview file first, so you can see exactly what's included; the product file is a word document, which you may personalize for your students.
