Features: Interface: New, larger, easy to read icons. More intuitive pop-up menu for resolving ambiguous selections. Change the attributes of any object in just a few clicks Labels: Now you can name all graphical objects and position labels anywhere around an object Expressions: Define expressions with one or more variables and evaluate them dynamically Instantaneous graphs: You can easily draw and study graphs of one or more functions, and direct manipulation allows you to explore a functionâs results according to its parameters Loci: Display loci of points or objects, loci of loci, and intersections with loci. You can also display equations of algebraic curves drawn using the Locus tool Smart lines: Only the useful portion of a line is displayed. You can change the length of that portion as often as you like Colours: Choose objects and text colours as well as the area fill colour from the new extended colour palette, or use the new dynamic colour feature Pictures (Bitmaps, JPEG, GIF): Attach any images to objects in the figure (points, line segments, polygons, background). The images will be updated during animations and as the figure is manipulated Text: Edit the style, font, and text attributes of individual characters Figure Description window: Now you can open a window to list all stages of the construction Recording a session: Record a session as you use the program. Then display it onscreen or print it at a later date to monitor studentsâ progress, and clearly identify any difficulties they may be experiencing Import/Export figures: Figures can be transferred to and from your computer to Cabri Junior on TI graphing calculators (TI-83 Plus and TI-84 Plus)
Review: Cabri II Plus is a dynamic geometry software solution, which is handy for both math teachers and students. Giving you a virtual learning environment, an interactive tool that can help you in learning the concepts of mathematics at a high level. The learning curve is smooth, and students can also use the built-in wizard to figure out how things work. You can use the Cabri II Plus for the preparation and management of all types of data from simple geometric lines, circles, and triangles in complex 3D shapes. Create the intersection, add lines, segments, vectors or polygons, circles and arcs. The program allows you you to build a geometric structure by automatically generating parallel or perpendicular lines, draw the angle bisectors or angle measurement using virtual compass. You can freely manipulate objects to perform the calculations and guesswork. The application can be used to solve the symmetry, reflection and problems with translation, rotation of objects, surfaces, techniques, distances, lengths and angles and solve equations. Cabri II Plus facilitates the process of learning because students can add tags to their images, identify and evaluate the expression, marking the corners and attach pictures to their drawings. In addition, allows the program to be easy to draw a graph for different functions, as well as show the loci of points or objects. This software has fully customizable appearance, allowing you to change the style of the text and use a dynamic range to adjust the color of the object. In addition, it can easily record the session when a user program features coming in handy especially for teachers. Numbers that you create can be transferred to TI graphing calculators or export to Word and PowerPoint documents. In general, Cabri II Plus is a good substitute for the traditional pen and paper, which enables students to explore space and learn geometry in a whole new and more interactive way.
