Moving Results in Plane Geometry and Complex Analysis Via GeoGebra
Naval Postgraduate School
|Click to access this paper:
Euclid 'proved' SAS for triangles, moving one to coincide with the other. Still, it took 2000 years to introduce motion into geometry. With GeoGebra, moving figures bring clarity, insight into proofs, and excitement to geometry and complex analysis. Examples discussed include plane isometries and inversion in the complex plane.
