The Geometer's Sketchpad is a cross platform application designed to provide support for solving, illustrating, and experimenting with various math problems, geometrical figures, related parameters, and so on.

The application enables you to create geometrical shapes, to apply various transformations, and to measure the changes in real time. Moreover, the app can also plot functions, or create graphs for equations.

Unsophisticated yet versatile software solution for solving mathematical problems

The The Geometer's Sketchpad user interface is represented by the canvas area where you can draw the geometrical figures, or plot the graphs, and a toolbar panel that includes buttons for most frequently used functions.

To help you get started, The Geometer's Sketchpad comes with a built in learning center where you can find out more about how the application works, and view some of the ways in which it can be used to teach math. Furthermore, you can explore multiple getting started tutorials, or access the online resources center.

Interact with various geometrical figures and analyze the results after modifying various parameters

The best part when it comes to The Geometer's Sketchpad is that you get to analyze various situations and run your own experiments without having to deal with a complicated workflow.

The application provides support for drag and drop actions, can perform various measurements depending on the currently selected geometrical figure, and so on. When dealing with functions or equations, you simply have to input the parameters, and The Geometer's Sketchpad will automatically plot the graph.

Powerful yet easy to use tool for learning and understanding mathematical concepts

The Geometer's Sketchpad offers pupils the possibility to visualize the results of different geometrical problems, or to understand the behavior of a function or equation when you are changing the parameters values. As a result, The Geometer's Sketchpad can prove to be a great tool for students and teachers alike.
