How I Use It
GeoGebra is an application/website that I use often to help students when we are learning geometry constructions and how to measure angles or other geometric figures. I use this especially with my students who are lower level thinkers because it allows students to see the Algebra behind the constructions that they make. As a teacher, I can create lessons for my students or allow them to create. It also allows me to collaborate with teachers from all over the world.
My Take
GeoGebra is a very user friendly program. The students enjoy using the technology instead of paper and pencil and it allows them to see the connections between Geometry and Algebra. The Java download on a computer works much better in my opinion than the app because of the difference between and mouse and touch screen.
