The Geometer's Sketchpad software is published by Key Curriculum Press. Decatur High School and Cedar Ridge Middle School own version 4 of the software. Version 5 is now available to purchase, and a trial version can be downloaded from the Key Curriculum Press website.

I am in the process of correlating GSP resources to ACOS 2010 and the Common Core State Standards for Mathematics. Please email me regarding activities you have found that correlate to specific objectives and/or objectives that you would like to teach using GSP. My email address is: jeanne.simpson@uah.edu
