Cabrilog, supporting mathematics and science education

The aim of Cabri is to support students in their deep understanding of mathematics. The dynamic functionality of Cabri improves exploration, experimentation and resolution of problems.”

Colette Laborde

Director of Pedagogy at Cabrilog University lecturer (Didactics of mathematics)

About us

Cabrilog was founded in 2000 by Jean-Marie Laborde, member of the CNRS team research who developed the first dynamic mathematical software in 1986, and by Max Marcadet.

The company designs, develops and distributes digital teaching resources and apps dedicated to mathematics (algebra, geometry, trigonometry).

Cabri solution support students and education workers from primary school to college.

Cabrilog’s goal is to improve the quality of learning by creating tools that enhance the fun of teaching and the fun of learning.

Three fields of expertise

To achieve this aim, the activities are the subject of reflection based on several fields of expertise:

Didactical engineering

&

Pedagogical design of digital resources for learning mathematics

Design of highly interactive 2D

&

3D mathematical engines

Student-centred interfaces

Cabri solutions fit perfectly with:

For students

active, simple and interactive, due to resources which motivate students to learn by being less abstract, more experimental and interactive

For teachers

flexibility, extensibility and freedom to make teaching choices, tools which help the teacher to concentrate on teaching by simplifying class preparation and assessment of students’ work, new opportunities to encourage students to enter the world of mathematics

Cabrilog effective software and resources

The effectiveness of this didactic support has been highlighted by many studies. Of most note is a study which makes a connection between the results from the national testing of Spanish students and the use of Cabri application and resources. The study shows a 30% improvement in results compared to students who do not use Cabri app or resources.

A study, commissioned by the Secretary of Education of Madrid was conducted as part of a research project on “Training and research on the use of information and communication technologies in mathematics for secondary education”.

This study was conducted by the researchers José María Arias Cabezas and Ildefonso Maza Sáenz on a period of 6 years,and extended to Andalusia, Castile and Leon and Castile La Mancha. The study is based on a sample of 400 teachers and 15,000 high school students.

The results, summarized in the article of January 9, 2006 in the daily “EL Pais”, reveals the positive impact of Cabri software on students’ results in learning mathematics.

On average, the researchers found an improvement in student learning in Mathematics of 25% with the new technologies, more particularly, the software Cabri, Derive, Excel and the Internet tool.

Cabrilog was also awarded the BETT Award for Best Resource in the “Secondary Primary Materials” category for its Cabri 3D solution in 2007.

Recognized for Pedagogical interest by the French Ministry of Education since 2010, Cabri software today has more than 200 million users worldwide, having a well deserved place internationally in education.

They love Cabri

Teachers talk about Cabrilog

“If someone tells me I have to stop using Cabri, I would actually have to ask them what else is there ? Because there is nothing better than Cabri.”

Geometry teacher, Canada

“You can do no wrong using Cabri. Students can develop their mathematical reasoning and logic and may even discover things that the teacher hadn’t considered.”

Lil Engström, Associate Professor, Sweden

“Cabri software is so easy to use that any person who can use use a mouse is able to learn to use the basic tools for learning by the end of a single lesson.”

Bernardo Camou, Geometry teacher, Uruguay
