## New Dimensions in Mathematics Technology with Cabri3DJean-Marie LabordeJean-Marie.Laborde@cabri.comCabrilog France
## Abstract Visualization and mental imagery are well known
to be keys for mastering and understanding mathematics concepts.
Relevant concepts range from the area of pure geometry to other
less geometric domains such as algebra, calculus and statistics.
In other words, mathematics is used to assist modeling in many areas
in sciences. Mental imagery is mostly inspired by 3D (sometimes
by n-dimensions) mental representations. This is the reason why
dynamic environments for 3D are essential to the learning and teaching
of mathematics. Existing dynamic environments have been mostly devoted
in 2D. In this presentation, the speaker will show how the new Cabri3D
extends direct manipulation of mathematical objects to 3D. This
presentation will be supported by appropriate examples in geometry,
algebra and calculus. In addition, speaker will also demonstrate
how 4-dimensional objects can be manipulated- a special tribute
will be paid to Salvador Dali for his work Corpus Hypercubicus dated
1954. |
