Kig

Kig

Kig is an application for interactive geometric construction, allowing students to draw and explore mathematical figures and concepts using the computer.

It is intended to serve two purposes:

  • Allow students to interactively explore mathematical figures and concepts using the computer
  • Serve as a WYSIWYG tool for drawing mathematical figures and including them in other documents

Kig supports macros and is scriptable using Python. It can import and export files in various formats, including SVG, Cabri, Dr. Geo, KGeo, KSeg, and XFig.

Kig is part of the KDE 4 education module.

It is meant as a better replacement for such free programs as KGeo, KSeg and Dr. Geo and commercial programs like Cabri.
