Abstract: We present three software tools to help students in an introductory computer graphics course visualize and experiment with fundamental geometric operations. Each tool has an associated set of activities that challenge students to use the tool to do such things as find visual counter examples and visually design solutions to solve new problems. The tools and activities address the topics of 2D transformations, 3D transformations, and transformations using the OpenGL graphics library. They could easily be used for classroom demonstrations, in a laboratory environment, or as homework assignments.
