Euclid's Elements form one of the most beautiful and influential works of science in the history of humankind. Its beauty lies in its logical development of geometry and other branches of mathematics. The text of all 13 Books is complete, and all of the figures are illustrated using the Geometry Applet, even those in the last three books on solid geometry that are three-dimensional.

The book does not assume any previous knowledge of the Conic Sections, which are here treated on the basis of the definition of them as the curves of projection of a circle. Many of the properties of the Conic Sections are proved quite simply.

The author gives an introduction to basic features of the PostScript language and shows how to use it for producing mathematical graphics. The book includes the discussion computer graphics and some comments on good style in mathematical illustration.

We outline some interesting results with illustrations made by dynamic software. We center around the notions of reflection and isogonal conjugation, and introduce a number of interesting triangle centers, lines, conics, and a few cubic curves.
