Geometer’s Sketchpad 5, known as Sketchpad or GSP for short, is the world’s leading math teaching and learning software. Sketchpad provides an intuitive and easy-to-understand math method that is suitable for students from High School to University.
Geometer’s Sketchpad enhances student engagement, understanding, and academic achievement. Math will no longer be a big challenge for learners through Geometer’s Sketchpad software.
Lower-level students can manipulate animated models of fractions, number lines, and geometric models with Geometer’s Sketchpad. Middle school students can learn Algebra by learning about ratios, rates of change, and mathematical relationships through numerical representation, tables, and graphs. Meanwhile, Middle School students can use the sketchpad to create and transform shapes and geometry problems, from linear to trigonometric; thereby gaining a deeper understanding of the exercise.
Geometer’s Sketchpad learning software integrates a series of classic drawing tools, used in Euclidean geometry such as rulers and compasses, and supports basic rendering tools such as taking the midpoint of a line segment, drawing a line passing through it. 1 point and perpendicular or parallel to another line, draw an angle equal to a given angle, draw the bisector of the angle…
In addition, Geometer’s Sketchpad also supports measuring line lengths, measuring angles, calculating area, radius…; Perform transformations such as rotation, translation, etc.
For teaching purposes, Geometer’s Sketchpad for Windows is the ultimate tool for interactive whiteboards. Teachers can use it in the classroom to illustrate and clarify mathematical knowledge, helping students understand the lesson more easily.
Teachers will use Geometer’s Sketchpad to check old lessons, give visual sketches and take detailed notes to convey knowledge to students in the fastest way. This software is especially useful when used in conjunction with a projector or in a computer room.
