Google Sketchup

18 Sep

As I start to move more and more towards using technology, using Paint or just Word for my drawings was started to get very limited (and ugly).

I ❤ Picture 1.

On top of taking care of my personal email, calendar, reader, chat, map, etc., it also now has control over my teaching life as well- my lesson/pacing plan (calendar), class webpage, and newly added, my 3D drawings!

Introducing Google Sketchup! It’s free and quite easy to use. Looking forward the the geometry volumes chapter.

My first creation. =) Used for finding equations when building deeper and deeper wells like this.

The video tutorials do a great job of introducing the program. Making 4 drawings of 4 wells with different depths took me about 25 minutes. And this was the very first time using it too.
