Interactive Math Tool Promoting Problem Solving and Logical Thinking

Created by teachers, the CanFigureIt Geometry tool provides an easy-to-use workspace where students can practice geometric proofs while engaging in deductive reasoning. The tool covers several types of geometric proofs—from proving facts about lines to more complicated proofs on triangles, quadrilaterals, and circles. An embedded glossary with visuals and templates demonstrates the structure of theorems, and an algebra manipulator also helps students solve for specific values. Students can work through the proofs with guided instructions or on their own. They can work forward from the provided information (called “Gifts”) or backward from the goal in a step-by-step method. CanFigureIt gives students a number of different options, from typing in choices to tapping an image provided to selecting from various preset theorems available to them. Handy hints help students when they get stuck, and a full-screen pop-up congratulates students when they arrive at the final proof. A dashboard lets teachers see student progress and assign supporting proofs as needed. Teachers can sign up to use the tool for free.
