is an software package on dynamical geometry, developed at the University of Grenoble (France).
The homepage offers information about the product, including some
Java
online examples and
how they may be generated
using the most recent version Cabri II
(Caution: strong browser dependence).
A demo version may be
downloaded.


JavaSketchpad Center

informs about a software package by Nick Jackiw (Key Curriculum Press, USA),
which allows  to some extent  the presentation of dynamical geometry on the Web..
It is essentially the Java version of
Geometer's Sketchpad.
A Demo Gallery
shows examples. (It needs a browser capable of Java 1.1 The first call of an applet
may take several minutes, all further applets are loaded quite fast).
Anyone who likes to put dynamical geometry on the Web and is ready to learn some
construction grammar
just needs the JavaSketchpad Applet, which can be
downloaded
for free.

30 interactive sketches out of several fields of mathematics. His
homepage
informs about further topics and Java applications.


GEONET

is a software package which realizes dynamical geometry on the Web to a large extent.
It has been developed at the University of Bayreuth (Germany). Some
prepared examples
are presented. (GEONET needs a browser capable of Java 1.1).
Anyone who likes to put dynamical geometry on the Web may even prepare his or her constructions
online or
download
the necessary software.
GEONET originates from the
Geometry Applet
developed by David E. Joyce in 1996 at Clark University (USA)
in order to illustrate
Euclid's Elements.
For small screens an
older version
might be more appropriate to begin with.


Cinderella

A software package from Germany on dynamical geometry for the Web. It needs a browser capable of
Java 1.1. Some examples are available online.
Further examples may be found at the
MathsNet website.
