GSP is a program
designed to mimic straight edge and compass construction.
GSP can be used to develop intuition and illustrate aspects of a
proof, but may not itself stand in place of a proof.
Measurements in GSP are not exact, as you will see through some
of the GSP homework assignments. (Remember that you can
get more accurate measurements of the distance between
objects, e.g., points, or a line and a point, by using the
calculate function in GSP) . GSP is installed on
all ITAP lab machines, and it is located in the folder: standard
software/design tools/Geometer's Sketchpad 4-07, and the icon is
GSP 4-07. It is also available by Software Remote through
the ITAP website.
