3D: Explore the 3rd dimension
Until now three-dimensional geometry was difficult to teach – the
complexity of designs in perspective, models that are difficult and
time-consuming to construct…
is the only program that enables you to alleviate these construction
difficulties and that also contains the benefits of interactive
Cabri: Software serving pedagogy
from exploration to understanding »
With just a few clicks, students can:
Construct 2-D and 3-D figures,
from the simplest to the most complex, by combining fundamental
geometric objects such as points, angles, segments, circles,
planes, solids and transformations.
using fundamental algebraic concepts, such as numbers, variables
Connect geometry and algebra
by measuring length, angles, area and volume and then attaching
these numeric values directly to the figure to use them in
calculations or in algebraic expressions.
a figure's properties by manipulating its variable elements.
the effects of dynamic transformations like shrinking and
about algebraic and geometric properties, and then verify
relationships among various parts of a figure.
from lesson plans to assessment »
The teacher can:
- facilitate the introduction and understanding of new concepts
- promote the discovery of theorems, instead of just showing
- help model real-life situations.
Generate classroom resources
by inserting text or pictures in a figure, modifying graphical
elements, copying/pasting into other software and producing
to students, have them manipulate figures, observe and guide
them. Using Cabri allows you to better assess individual student
by integrating figures that can be manipulated on web pages or
by incorporating Microsoft Office® documents.
Have students solve problems
directly linked to the NCTM standards with possible
interdisciplinary connections to physics, geography and the
Focus on the features of Cabri 3D adapted especially for middle school
In addition to the features common to all Cabri products, Cabri 3D
Numeric and geometric tools
with planes, spheres and lines.
Study of common solids:
with a click of the mouse, the student or teacher can construct
pyramids, parallelograms, cylinders and cones.
Sections of solids:
The user can represent and determine planar sections of convex
Unfolding polyhedron into nets:
Cabri 3D unfolds all polyhedron into nets, which are printable
and can be reproduced onto card stock.
Measurements and calculations:
Find measurements related to objects - distances, lengths, area,
volumes and angles, and use them in calculations.
Unique 3D visualization tools
Through tools that facilitate
students and teachers can:
- Adjust viewing angles turning around the scene
- Appreciate the rendering of depth of the scene.
tools: Particularly stimulating for students, the tools enable
them to simultaneously put several elements of a construction in
motion. It is ideal for modeling physical phenomena.
