Topics: Internet Technology for Mathematics 

We investigated the relation between popular computer programs and geometry.

On the educational level, we focus on tools like paintbrush in Microsoft windows and Google earth. We discovered these (somewhat easy) tools provide interesting links between theoretical mathematics and experimental world.

In this talk, these new ideas for teaching and learning geometry will be presented.
