Geometer's Sketchpad

The Geometer's Sketchpad is a dynamic construction, demonstration, and exploration tool that adds a powerful dimension to the study of mathematics. You and your students can use this software program to build and investigate mathematical models, objects, figures, diagrams, and graphs.

With Sketchpad™, you can give your students a tangible, visual way to explore and understand core concepts—from numbers and operations, algebraic thinking, and geometry and measurement in elementary and middle school to algebra, geometry, trigonometry, precalculus, and calculus in high school and college. Concepts that students frequently find difficult become very clear when they see visual representations on the screen and interact with them using Sketchpad.

  • Geometer's Sketchpad allows students to visually represent math concepts and ideas in powerful ways and supports the notion of multiple means of representation
  • Geometer's Sketchpad allows students to demonstrate their knowledge using the computer ans supports the notion of multiple means of expression
