GeoGebra is a dynamic mathematics software suite that provides an interactive geometry environment, built-in spreadsheet, computer algebra system, and statistics tools for teaching STEM subjects, along with a cloud service for sharing GeoGebra applets.
What GeoGebra does
GeoGebra is a dynamic mathematics software suite designed for learning and teaching science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) from primary school to university level. It allows users to create constructions with various mathematical elements, which can be edited dynamically. GeoGebra is available on multiple platforms, including desktops, tablets, and web. It also offers an online platform with over 1 million free classroom resources created by a multilingual community. The GeoGebra Materials platform is a cloud service that allows users to upload and share GeoGebra applets with others.
Key features for teachers
