Cabri 3D: Some Possibilities
Faculty of Education
Cabri 3D is a relatively new software which has great
potential in teaching and learning and in the development of new mathematics.
An obvious use of Cabri 3D is in the three-dimensional geometry of polyhedra,
planes, cones, prisms, etc. However, it may also be used to facilitate
visualization and as a mediator between the world as experienced and the
abstract world of 2D geometry. It also enables the modeling of both architectural
and mathematical structures and of different types of objects in motion.
This paper will explore a number of possibilities and introduce an approach
based on an integration of text, hypertext, both static and dynamic pictures
and interactive demos.
