This site has interactive geometry sketches which demonstrate several famous and beautiful theorems in mathematics such as Napoleon, Viviani, nine-point circle, Euler line, Neuberg, Van Aubel, Spieker circle, Fermat-Torricelli points, etc., as well as further generalizations of many of these. It also includes Student Explorations which contain mostly geometric problems, challenges, explorations, and classroom material of interest hopefully to both students and teachers of mathematics in school as well as undergraduate level at university such as the hierarchical classification of quadrilaterals, interior angle sum of polygons, etc. Some of the explorations are directly related to the school math curriculum such as the "classifying, exploring and defining quadrilaterals" activity, while others such as "Bottema's theorem" are intended as challenges to extend students and teachers a little beyond the usual confines of the school. Some challenges are more suitable for training of enthusiasts of mathematical competitions.
