Euclid’s Sandbox is a web application for college geometry students that uses user interaction and interactive graphics to help teach specific proofs from Euclidean Geometry. Educational applications, such as this project, are important because of many people’s frustration in learning mathematics. In fact, according to the American Educator, about a quarter of four-year college students have a moderate or high degree of math anxiety. Through testing this web application with ten college students I demonstrate that interactive graphics promote the students’ learning. According to McGraw Hill Education, 77% of students say that study technology has helped improve their grades. However, there are challenges to creating educational software that meets the needs of students and teachers on a broad scale, including an inability to change features and a limited lesson plan.
