My Take

Geogebra is a great resource that aligns perfectly with the Common Core standards. One of the greatest features of the program are the resources available to students and teachers. http://www.geogebra.org offers close to 40,000 downloadable resources to assist both teachers and students. Two thumb up!

How I Use It

Even though Geogebra isn't the easiest program to master on the first try, students will adapt quickly. I have found it easiest if the teacher models the use of Geogebra in a whole group discussion using an electronic whiteboard if available. This program can be downloaded at home by students and if needed teachers can direct students to links in a blended delivery environment where students can then download the desired lesson and explore at their leisure.
