Vector graphics can be regarded as a mathematical tool. It provides movable objects which can be transform to obtain or check mathematical theorems. The reasons for using computers and vector graphics during the mathematical lessons are, between others, the following: simplicity, interactivity and accessibility. In the article some adequate examples are provided and the hints on using vector graphics in math education are formulated.
