Why use Sketchpad?
North Carolina's InfoWeb on High School Geometry
states that appropriate technology,
from manipulatives to calculators and graphics software, should be
used regularly for instruction and assessment.

Sketchpad Activities to Acompany Roads to Geometry
Assignment 1: Draw anything, explain using text within your sketchpad
document, and create and accompanying script.
Proof that all triangles have angle sum 180 degrees in sketchpad (ie
mainly text, but each group moved stuff around and incorporated my suggestions
into their proof until is was approved as clear and elegant).
