Item description for Advanced Euclidean Geometry by Alfred S. Posamentier...
Advanced Euclidean Geometryprovides a thorough review of the essentials ofhigh school geometry and then expands those concepts to advanced Euclidean geometry, to give teachers more confidence in guiding student explorations and questions.
The text contains hundreds of illustrations created in The Geometer's Sketchpad Dynamic Geometry software. It is packaged with a CD-ROM containing over 100 interactive sketches using Sketchpad (assumes that the user has access to the program).

Book Good but CD Has no Program - Just Prog Help Oct 18, 2005
I purchased this book that came with "Geometry Sketchpad" CD except CD contained no program file, only help files.
Just a scam to purchase program?
Instructions and program purchase made unclear on website and within book itself.
This book just made teaching the course so much easier! Jul 25, 2005
What an invaluable supplemental resource to have at my side while teaching a course in College Geometry! Although the class text is excellent (Geometry for College Students, by Isaacs), having this as a back-up made all the difference. The explanations are detailed and pitched at a level that students can easily follow, and the (Geometer's Sketchpad) diagrams show all the required information. Having the CD saved me from recreating the diagrams myself for class use. I highly recommend this book to anyone teaching high school or college geometry, or anyone who just wants to advance their knowledge of Euclidean and synthetic geometry.
A must-have book for every geometry teacher Jun 12, 2004
As a high-school geometry teacher, I have often wished for a book like this. Sadly, the typical one-year geometry course comes to an end just as students are within reach of some truly beautiful and intriguing theorems. Dr. Posamentier's book begins where most high-school geometry textbooks end, and presents many wonderful results that lie just beyond their purview: the nine- point circle; the golden rectangle; the theorems of Ceva, Menelaus, Ptolemy, Pascal, Desargues, and Brianchon; excircles and incircles; cyclic quadrilaterals; and much more. This book provides a rich geometric feast.
There are several books that cover much of the same ground that Dr. Posamentier surveys: GEOMETRY REVISITED, by Coxeter and Greitzer, and EPISODES IN NINETEENTH AND TWENTIETH CENTURY EUCLIDEAN GEOMETRY, by Honsberger, are two of the best. What makes Dr. Posamentier's book stand out is its usefulness as a textbook. Theorems are fully proved, and arranged in a logically coherent sequence. (The book is Euclidean in format as well as in subject matter.)
The book is thoughtfully designed. The pages are large, the type is easy to read, the diagrams are clear, and the book lies flat when opened.
EVERY HIGH-SCHOOL GEOMETRY TEACHER SHOULD HAVE THIS BOOK. It's a rich source of supplementary material for regular sections, and an ideal textbook for the second semester of an honors-level class, or for a student who wants to pursue the study of geometry on an independent-study basis.
I know that I'll be turning to this book again and again next year, and for as long as I teach geometry. In fact, I plan to buy another copy so that I'll have one at home and one in my classroom.
