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. 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.
