Perspective and Projective Geometry is an inquiry-based course designed for sophomore- and junior-level mathematics majors. The book -- developed as a collaborative project by Marc Frantz in Indiana, Fumiko Futamura in Texas, and Annalisa Crannell in Pennsylvania -- come from a project supported by NSF TUES Grand DUE-1140135, so thank you for your tax dollars! It's available from Princeton University Press.
Each worksheet in the completed book has
- a one-page picture that is also a math/art puzzle,
- a module with IBL-style in-class worksheet, and
- a homework set (with short exercises, an art project, and a proof/counter-example).
The Instructors' Manual comes with
- an instructor's section, with a guide to using the module, and
- answers to the module / homework questions.
