Matt E: I've been complaining about Geometry textbooks for a long time, but only just recently did I decide to actually try to do something about it. I believe that fostering students' natural curiosity, getting them into the habit of asking questions, and giving them the tools to go about trying to answer them are the keys to a successful Geometry course. I am a fairly devout Lockhartian, and I believe that math can--and, as much as possible, should--be its own "context." Students have absolutely no concept of what it means to "play with" math, and that is a tragedy. If there's a way to bring that to a math class given the numerous constraints (schedule, grades, etc.) of our respective schools, I want to find it.
