Teacher Review For Geogebra

Geogebra is free, and it is a great site for teaching transformations, linear functions, and geometry. It works by allowing students to see visually what happens in a transformation, tests theory on area, volume, etc.

How I Use It
I used this program when teaching transformations. Rotations worked great in the students seeing what happens. You can tell the program to rotate the figure how ever many degrees you want it to rotate and it will show you what happens, or students can move the figure themselves and the program will tell them the degree of rotation.
My Take
For the children that had a hard time mentally seeing the rotation, this provides a complete visual representation of the transformation. There is a better program, but it is harder to access and you have to pay for certain licensures, but for free software, this works the best.
