Using The Geometer's Sketchpad to Visualize Maximum-Volume Problems

  • Using The Geometer's Sketchpad to Visualize Maximum-Volume Problems

    Using this featured sketch and others like it, whether constructed by the teacher or by the student, can clearly aid in visualizing maxima in volume problems. Students gain practice in, and motivation for, such skills as polynomial multiplication. They see strong connections among technology, algebra, and geometry.
