The Geometry Aide
'The Geometry Aide' version 1.0 is a graphical mathematical geometry plotting
system. It is not designed to be a tutorial, but rather an aide to a teacher
or tutor in instructing novice to intermediate geometry students. Used alone
by a student it should only be expected to provide a visual correlation
between the equations (or physical parameters) of an object and its plotted
equivalent. 'The Geometry Aide' is designed to enhance a student's
understanding of the more abstract principles of mathematics. 'The
Geometry Aide' comes with default objects to graph which the student can
modify by altering its physical characteristics through the use of parameter
windows. 'The Geometry Aide' removes the fear of mistakes from the student
by identifying all illegal values entered into an equation or field. 'The
Geometry Aide' also allows the student to plot and create "custom" images
through the use of its two and three dimensional plotters.
'The Geometry Aide' is a shareware program. You are encouraged to make
copies of this program and pass them on to friends or post it on bulletin
boards or distribute it via disk catalog services provided the entire
'The Geometry Aide' distribution is included in its original state.
