 CIGS = Corner for Interactive Geometry Software

The Math Forum hosts geometry-software-dynamic, a newsgroup and mailing list designed for the discussion of such geometry software programs as The Geometer's Sketchpad and Cabri Geometry.

In the last few years, programs such as these have revolutionized the teaching and visualization of geometry. By means of the newsgroup, we talk about ways of teaching using this technology, discuss the behaviour of these programs in specific situations, and share sketches.
