We will show the tools which enable an analytic approach to the

geometry of space with Cabri 3D. We will show that it is possible to

better visually represent space with the help of equations in the

same screen as the figure. The workshop will focus mainly on planes

and lines and the algebraic possibilities opened by the equations of

these objects.
