Machines which find extremal triangles related to a given curve
These apps are taken from Book I of Euclid\\\'s Elements. Proposition 1 shows how to construct an equilateral triangle. Proposition 2 demonstrates how to create a straight line equal to a given straight line. Finally, proposition 3 teaches how to cut off a straight line that is equal to a given line from a larger line.
Archimedes Trammel is a device for drawing ellipses.
Two apps exploring rotating, tangent ellipses.
Theorems involving circles
This collection contains the examples apps that were created for "Creating HTML5 Apps with Mechanical Expressions."

5 clever geometry puzzlers. Can you solve them all?
Like your hands, an abacus lets you count in fives and tens. The first pair of columns are for hours, the second pair for minutes and the third pair for seconds. The bead at the top of each column counts for 5 single beads. The beads in the main compartment of the left column each count for 10 single beads. The bead in the top compartment, left column, counts as 50.
A Kaleidoscope works as a combination of reflections. Mirrors are typically arranged in an equilateral triangle producing multiple reﬂections as a symmetric pattern which changes as the triangle rotates.
The apps in this collection explain how it's done, and then, of course, turn the kaleidoscope into a clock!
This collection features several apps that were created for the electronic book for the iPad that adds interactive diagrams to Euclid’s Elements, a mathematical classic (Available from the iTunes store).
A couple of apps to let you explore a simple box solar cooker
Our binary digital clock has 3 sections, red beads for hours, purple for minutes and cyan for seconds. Beads in the up position represent the binary digit 1, beads in the down position represent 0. In addition to the Binary Clock, we've provided a Binary Test app to practice your binary numbers.
