GeoGebra is a complex mathematical program for those that study or work with arithmetic, geometry, algebra and calculus .
Aimed at math experts
It’s a rather complex app that’s aimed firmly at those comfortable with difficult math, but the advantage GeoGebra offers over similar apps is it provides multiple representations of items that are all dynamically linked. The concept is to connect geometric, algebraic, and numeric representations in an interactive way. This can be done with points, vectors, outlines, and conic sections.
GeoGebra allows you to directly enter and manipulate equations plus coordinates , enabling you to plot features; work with sliders to investigate parameters; find symbolic derivatives; and use effective commands like Root or Sequence.
The complexity of the program is brain boggling for those new to such mathematical applications. It’s very hard to work out how to use from scratch, although there are several very detailed tutorials to help you on your way.
Not for the faint hearted
GeoGebra isn’t a mathematical program for the faint hearted but if you have to handle arithmetic, geometry, algebra and calculus on a regular basis, it is very versatile .
What’s brand new in GeoGebra
The latest version of GeoGebra includes tangent to Freehand Functions, as well as the ability to save projections pertaining to 3D view (unless “Gray-scale” and “Omit green channel”), a “Use Lighting” option for 3D view (turns off shadows), and a “Show All of Objects” button for 3D view.
