GeoGebra is a cross-platform, Open Source application written in Java, that puts together algebra, geometry and calculus. Created by Markus Hohenwarter of the Florclassa Atlantic University, it has received many international awards including the European and German educational software awards.
GeoGebra shows the relationship between geometry and algebra and how one can constructs with points, vectors, segments, lines, conic sections as well as functions and change them dynamically afterwards.
With GeoGebra you can create interactive demonstrations and precise images of geometric figures for inclusion in teaching and testing materials.
