ViewPoint is an interactive geometry package. It allows for a variety
of constructions and measurements. To accompany the measurements is a
built-in calculator.
Constructions include integer vertices, segment bisector, angle
bisector, intersection of lines, reflection of a point about a line,
and use of a compass. There are also specialized constructions such as
perpendicular segments, parallel segments, segments tangent to a circle,
and a number of geometric shapes -- right triangles, isosceles triangles,
equilateral triangles, squares, rhombuses (rhombi?), 3-point circles, and
more.
Measurements range from length of segment, length of arc, area of
region, to angular measure.
The program does not allow for dynamic changes in constructions by
grabbing a point and moving it. Nevertheless, the program will allow for
a variety of geometric experiments.
The demo version differs from the standard version in a limitation to
5 points. Saving, reading and printing are all intact.
A 4-page manual is included. The program runs under current systems.
