Getting the best out of Geogebra
What is it?
I used to call Geogebra 'dynamic geometry software' and whilst it does perform this very well, to say that it is a piece of dynamic geometry software is rather underselling it. It does far more than that -
2D Graphing, Geometry, Spreadsheet, Statistics, Probability, CAS (Computer Algebra System), ...
The beautiful thing is that it connects all these aspects together dynamically. The following example of a Calculus problem connects a geometrical image with a graph and captures the data in a spreadsheet.
Here are some top tips to ensure that the first experience you have using Geogebra in the classroom is a good one!
