GeoGebra is a free and open-source software program. It lets users, especially students to interactively explore and create 2d and 3d Cartesian & Euclidean geometry - as well as calculus. It combines geometry, algebra, tables, graphing, statistics and calculus in one easy-to-use package.

GeoGebra has received several educational software awards in Europe and the United States of America.

Dynamic Interface

GeoGebra has a responsive and well set out interface that is easy to navigate. Its features are carefully stacked in. The app is practical for those who already have a little understanding of and vision on mathematics and geometry.

It is better to go through the online manual to simplify the user experience.

Robust tool for creating Geometrical Construction

GeoGebra helps make math more meaningful and visual for students. It is a whole different world of math giving students a way to access math beyond simple pencil-and-paper computations. It combines a flexible, easy-to-use geometry tool with the direct input of equations and coordinates.

GeoGebra uses augmented reality (AR), which adds digital elements to these geometric constructions and algebraic graphs. It also uses CAS (Computer Algebra System) for symbolic computations.

The left pane of the program has a menu that provides a whole heap of tools including the standard objects: point, line, angle, circle, arc, perpendicular bisector. The idea is to connect geometric, algebraic, and numeric representations in an interactive way. This is done typically with the illustration of points, vectors, lines, and conic sections.

It's worth mentioning here that GeoGebra performs symbolic calculations, deal with variables for numbers, vectors and points, finds derivatives and integrals of functions utilize their graphs, etc.

It has the ability to make Geometric transformations, enlargement, vector fields, polar coordinates, unit circles, histograms, hyperbolic geometry, linear regressions, best-fit line, best-fit curve, unit circle cosine graph sine and cosine graphs, matrix transformations, newton raphson, piecewise function, pentominoes, cross-sections, slope field, spreadsheets, rotations, parametric equations, slider, differential equations, inequalities, sequence, integral, trigonometry, ellipse, limits, vector function, fractions, mandelbrot, unit vector, intersection, dot plot, Julia set, zeta function, binomial distribution, probability and all mathematical complexities with visual illustrations. How cool is that!

Potential Effectiveness as a Teaching Tool

GeoGebra has made it simple for teachers even to make mathematical concepts much easier and interesting for students. They can make whatever they need for their students. They don't really have to start from scratch, instead, they can build off of the work of others. This means that math simulations are being built every day by teachers all around the world.

It is a great tool for teaching online. Teachers, instructors or home tutors can use this tool to create their own interactive worksheets and lessons that include 2d & 3d simulations. These can be demonstrated to the students while allowing them to improve their mathematical thinking and understanding. As a result of it, it can create an interesting environment for students to learn mathematics.

How can GeoGebra be used in the classroom?

Teachers can make use of smartboards to illustrate mathematical concepts. GeoGebra has a large compilation of 263,067 free and interactive materials that can be used in the classroom. It's even possible that this app will remove the need for a graphing calculator/scientific calculator.

Summing Up

GeoGebra gives deep insight into how things actually work. It's a powerful tool that uses animations to simplify mathematical concepts.

Therefore, it is not just an app, it is an all in one package for those who work a lot with algebra and geometry. And, if you look at its logo, it portrays the same idea and concept that you would expect from this app.

Hence, it's worth a try.
