Cabri 3D v2, a simple and comprehensive software to understand 3D geometry in the classroom.
Until now three-dimensional geometry was difficult to teach – the complexity of designs in perspective, models that are difficult and time-consuming to construct.Cabri 3D is the only program that enables you to alleviate these construction difficulties and that also contains the benefits of interactive geometry.
With just a few clicks, students can:
• Construct 3-D figures, from the simplest to the most complex, by combining fundamental geometric objects such as points, angles, segments, circles, planes, solids and transformations.
• Create expressions using fundamental algebraic concepts, such as numbers, variables and operations.
• Connect geometry and algebra by measuring length, angles, area and volume and then attaching these numeric values directly to the figure to use them in calculations or in algebraic expressions.
• Explore a figure’s properties by manipulating its variable elements.
- Observe the effects of dynamic transformations like shrinking and enlarging.
- Make conjectures about algebraic and geometric properties, and then verify relationships among various parts of a figure.
Tools for teachers: “from lesson plans to assessment”
The teacher can:
• Create activities that:
- facilitate the introduction and understanding of new concepts
- promote the discovery of theorems, instead of just showing them
- help model real-life situations.
• Generate classroom resources by inserting text or pictures in a figure, modifying graphical elements, copying/pasting into other software and producing high-quality printouts.
• Present activities to students, have them manipulate figures, observe and guide them. Using Cabri allows you to better assess individual student comprehension.
• Expand online by integrating figures that can be manipulated on web pages or by incorporating Microsoft Office® documents.
• Have students solve problems directly linked to the NCTM standards with possible interdisciplinary connections to physics, geography and the arts.
