In this workshop we will work together on a beautiful geometry
problem. Our progress in understanding the problem will be helped by
the use of interactive geometry software (the Casio ClassPad 300
Plus in this case). The problem is suitable for investigation by
students in upper high school or first year of university. The
workshop leader will conclude by arguing that the reason for sharing
problems with students is about ''much more'' than just being able
to write a proof. You will experience the ''much more''.
