8 of the Best Free Linux Geometry Software

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, proprietary, commercial, integrated mathematical software environments. Other types of mathematical software packages generally receive much less publicity.

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 observed.

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.
