With Sketchpad, students are able to measure lengths of segments, measures of angles, area, perimeter, and more. They can also use tools that allow them to create objects in relation to selected objects. The transform function allows the user to create points in relation to objects, which include distance, angle, ratio, and others. With these tools, one can create numerous different objects, measure them, and potentially figure out hard-to-solve math problems.
JavaSketchpad (JSP) is software that lets you interact with—or publish—sketches from The Geometer's Sketchpad on the Internet.
