The package GeometricaPlus deals with two types of interactive functions. The first one concerns libraries of geometrical objects, namely conics, quadrics, parametric curves and surfaces and platonic solids. For instance, by typing a statement such as PlatonicSolid[x], the user triggers the display of a menu containing the five platonic solids and clicking a window will transfer the selected solid to the dynamic variable x. For intersections, the two curves are displayed in a window and cursors are provided to displace a point on each curve. The points are moved until they approximately coincide close to an intersection. Then, by clicking a button Solve, the numerical coordinates of the intersection are calculated and the process can be repeated for any other intersection. In all the interactive applications, the dynamic results can be used for further treatment such as drawing or geometrical transformation. Animations which are part of the documentation are also presented.
