The Geometry Machine
This machine generates 3D virtual reality geometrical images of vectors, lines and planes
to aid students in understanding the geometrical
interpretation of Linear Algebra. To get the most from this machine, use it to view a
geometrical problem that you have already solved, eg finding the intersection point of
If you dont know anything about vector equations of lines
or planes, you will not be able to use the machine but you can see some
samples generated by the it.
You will need a VRML viewer or plugin such as live3D which comes with Netscape 3 and 4 in
order to be able to see the virtual reality worlds generated by the machine. If you are not
sure whether you have it, try viewing the samples before activating
Programming the Machine
Select the number of each of the following objects that you want displayed and then press the
button to switch on the machine. When it is switched on the machine will ask you for the
vector equations of each one.
