SOME STUDENT COMMENTS

(Using my Rethinking Proof with Sketchpad book)

"I really enjoyed every session, Prof. You have inspired me to use the latest of technology in maths in my teaching. Using this method of teaching has helped me greatly to discover proofs on my own. I can really understand theorems well now. Prof, your enthusiasm and passion for geometry is evident in the extensive materials you have come up with that is excellent for teaching. Being a visual learner I benefited greatly. Thank you for modernizing geometry. You linked our topics to real life, telling us about the backgrounds of mathematicians and other stories, it made the lectures easy to listen to, I enjoyed it!" - Geometry Final Year, 2005, University of KwaZulu-Natal, Edgewood

 

“I really enjoyed working with the dynamic geometry software. I have already started incorporating it into my teaching & found it to be a tremendous resource. In addition, I thought emphasizing discovery learning to be a refreshing change of pace for a geometry course.” - Geometry Graduate (Masters) 7714, Fall 06, Kennesaw State University

 

“I feel Dr deV is the first true mathematician I have ever met … I loved the generalizing, specializing & challenges …” - Geometry Graduate (Masters) 7714, Fall 06, Kennesaw State University

 

“Geometer’s Sketchpad was an amazing tool that greatly enhanced my learning. The prof’s book which walks you through Sketchpad activities was incredibly useful and a fun way to learn.” - Geometry Graduate (Masters) 7714, Fall 07, Kennesaw State University

 

“The self discovery aspect of the textbook written by de Villiers is wonderful” - Geometry Graduate (Masters) 7714, Fall 07, Kennesaw State University
