App Description

Interactive Geometry is a friendly, intuitive and easy-to-use math application for teaching and understanding basic and advanced geometry skills and lessons. This application contains howto's for step-by-step learning and understanding of many key geometry concepts, a skills checker to test understanding, shape recognition indicators when special geometric shapes are created, and an interactive workspace sharing mode linking two or more iPads.

This application is used in the classroom and at home to learn and understand basic and complex math equations and skills associated with points, lines, rays, segments, single and pair of angles, triangles, quadrilaterals, ellipses, circles and more. These geometric shapes can be manipulated by dragging points/shapes or by manually entering parameters associated with the given shape.

The interactive nature of the program allows the student to see and better understand math concepts, relationships, and properties of a geometric shape when they drag points in a geometric shape. You can interactively work with reflections of points and shapes, move points freely, rotate points about a reference point, and move points linearly (translate) parallel to a reference line.

This program is used as a tool to compare and measure the length, slope, angles, and areas of shapes on the screen or relative to reference images displayed on the background. Load images for display on the background or take a snapshot (iPad 2 or newer) of an item around you for display on the background. You can then select the line segment, angle or other shapes to measure lengths, angles, and areas of the items in the background image. Shape stats such as angles, lengths, slopes, and more can be viewed using the stats screen or by touching on the labels associated with the points and lines of each shape.
