Geometer's Sketchpad

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.
