The Power of Scripting: DGS Meets Programming
Richter-Gebert, Jürgen; Kortenkamp, Ulrich
Acta Didactica Napocensia, v3 n2 p67-78 2010
In this article we demonstrate how the combination of a system for dynamic geometry with a freely programmable scripting environment can be advantageously used in teaching and research. We explain the reasons behind various design decisions that were made by us when designing the language "CindyScript" and give examples that proof how they lead to easy and understandable code that can be used in education. We give several concrete application scenarios of the language that was developed by the authors and seamlessly interacts with the dynamic geometry system Cinderella.
