isosceles : geometry sketchpad is an iPhone and iPad educational app that helps to teach students geometry by projecting a precise representation of shapes measured, drawn, and created by you or your students.
When I was teaching in the classroom, we had SMARTBoards in nearly every classroom in the board I was working for. This was awesome, but for some subjects it was more difficult than it needed to be. In the past, I would photocopy a grid sheet to draw with a ruler and water erase marker. When I was required to draw on the SMARTBoard, I could no longer be as precise. This app, however, fixes this problem. Now I have a grid paper and a mathematical app that will help me draw. The SMARTBoard grid papers just didn’t cut it!
When I was supply teaching, I’d make sure to have an overhead of the grid paper, as well as the grid paper slide ready in my SMARTBoard folder. This helped me to be prepared for what may come up in math class. I wish this app had been around then! Measuring angles, constructing multisided 2D shapes, and also 3D shapes is easy with this great math app.
Draw figures and add calculations
Perfect for Students, Teachers, and Professionals
isosceles : geometry sketchpad is a very versatile app. You can draw lines, circles, polygons, and conics, and you can also combine them to create complete drawings. The app automatically attaches new additions to nearby objects so your drawing remains accurate. Plus, you can add text wherever you need to for annotations, mathematical expressions, calculations, and so on. Insert images and graph functions directly, and easily to construct your diagram and figures for teaching, or for your own construction needs.
Extra features for teachers include connecting your iPad to a tv or projector for easy presentation, and for students, you can easily access the side bar to take notes as you solve problems. It really is a versatile mathematical app.
