Applications of GeoGebra

GeoGebra is a dynamic and interactive mathematics software for geometry, algebra, calculus, trigonometry and statistics. Tools in GeoGebra are helpful in various constructions and calculations. Entry of equations and mapping of various variables can be done using the tools, input bar, CAS and spreadsheet views. Interactive explorations can be done using the tools in 2D and 3D Graphics modes.

GeoGebra is a very useful tool to learn and teach different branches of mathematics. GeoGebra desktop application are available for Windows, Mac OS and Linux and tablet appls are available for Android, iPad and Windows. Its web app is based on HTML5 technology. GeoGebra was created by Markus Hohenwarter and started as part of his master’s thesis at the University of Salzburg, continuing at Florida Atlantic University, Florida State University, and then at the University of Linz with the help of open-source developers and translators all over the world. Bernard Parisses’ Giac was integrated into GeoGebra’s CAS view in 2013. Both commercial and not-for-profit entities work together to expand the software and cloud services for users.
