Cabri II Plus

Cabri II Plus, developed in France. Cabri is one of the early interactive geometry software in the mid 1990s. Cabri has a hardware TI calculator version. A particular feature that is first done by Cabri is that it has conics sections as a primitive. That is, you can have 5 points that defines a conic section, that is any of parabola, ellipse, hyperbola. Dragging any of the points will change the conics section. Any other figures build on the conic section will of course change accordingly. This makes Cabri a excellent choice for doing projective geometry.
