The Geometric Supposer
 
Design: Judah Schwartz, Michal Yerushalmy, Beba Shternberg
Programming: Alon Gamliel, Aviv Cnaan, Alexander Zilber

the new version of The Geometric Supposer makes use of all the options of a Windows environment: the user can work simultaneously on different kinds of figures, and also create new figures that connect the basic figures. He or she can move a figure and see how this movement affects the other figures, the relations between them and the measurements. One can open several windows at once and explore all of them in parallel. And if the computations become too complicated, one can link to a different software (Excel) to perform them.
The software supplies tools for all the constructions that can be done with straightedge and compass, and also contains "ready made" objects, such as a quadrangle that can be inscribed in a circle. The software "remembers" all the construction and measurements done on an object and allows to repeat them on another object.
The Geometric Supposer-3 is an inquiry lab that allows every one at every level to enjoy real mathematics.
The software comes with workbooks containing guiding pages for explorations in various subjects of the curriculum, for all grades.
