Diagrams
Diagrams trains students to draw very accurate scale drawings when solving a multitude of spatial problems that are presented to them as text-only. The program’s main feature is its unique animated step-by-step worked solutions that students can access to help them draw the correct diagram.

It provides a highly motivating environment for students of all abilities as they seek to obtain the most accurate answer, rather than just being the first to finish.


Features

> Unique step-by-step solutions are created for each problem, which outline each stage of the construction of the diagram.
> 12 types of problems are generated that include simple squares, rectangles and rhombuses, angles of elevation and depression, bearings and compass-and-ruler triangle constructions. Watch the demonstration video above to view all them.
> Many of the problems can also be solved using Pythagoras’ Theorem or Trigonometry
> The calculation of both the perimeter and the area of triangles can be tested.
> The accuracy of the user’s answer is compared against the exact answer. Allowance for error tolerances is made before a final score is awarded. This actively drives the user to improve the care and attention that they invest in their drawings.
