8 of the Best Free Linux Geometry Software
In the field of mathematical software packages, applications
such as Wolfram Research's Mathematica, and Maplesoft's Maple
system instantly spring to mind. These are both highly popular,
commercial, integrated mathematical software environments. Other
types of mathematical software packages generally receive much less
One such area is interactive geometry software, which combines
three branches of mathematics: geometry, calculus and algebra. This
type of software allows users to create and modify constructions, which
are generally in plane geometry. Construction involves
building mathematical shapes out of points, lines, conic sections,
hyperbola, ellipses, and circles. These diagrams can then be altered
and the effects of the mathematical properties of the shapes can be
Typically geometry software covers a wide range of application
areas, including pure Euclidean and non-Euclidean geometry,
computer-aided design, and computational kinematics. It is
often found being used for learning and teaching mathematics in schools
and colleges and for research purposes.
To provide an insight into the quality of software that is
available, we have compiled a list of 8 free high quality Linux
interactive geometry software. We have included 2D and 3D software.
Hopefully, there will be something of interest in this article for both
students and teachers alike.
Now, let's explore the 8 geometry applications at hand. For
each title we have compiled its own portal page, providing a screenshot
of the software in action, a full description with an
in-depth analysis of its features, together with links to relevant
resources and reviews.
