GeoGebra: Mathematical application for education at all levels

In these current times, especially during the COVID-19 pandemic, in which the Teaching and learning processes require applications or platforms, preferably free, open and / or free to facilitate and continue them, a call is available to those interested GeoGebra.

The application of Free software GeoGebra, is focused on mathematics area, especially to education sector at all levels, as it provides tools and functions for the subjects of arithmetic, geometry, algebra, calculus and analysisIncluding statistical resources.

GeoGebra: Introduction

Many years ago, we commented on GeoGebra on the Blog. And by then, we commented on the following:

"GeoGebra is a dynamic geometry program, which means that with it we can generate constructions from points, segments, lines, etc. and animate them to recreate different geometric formulations and thus learn better or better teach the desired concepts. But it doesn't just stop there; also handles calculus and algebra within the same dynamic environment".

About GeoGebra

However, today, in the About GeoGebra section from his Official website it is described as:

"GeoGebra is math software for all educational levels. Dynamically brings together geometry, algebra, statistics, and calculus into graphical, analytical, and spreadsheet organizational records. GeoGebra, with its free agility of use, brings together a vital and growing community.

Around the world, millions of enthusiasts embrace it and share GeoGebra designs and applications. Energize the study. Harmonizing the experimental and the conceptual to experience a didactic and disciplinary organization that crosses mathematics, science, engineering and technology (STEM: Science Technology Engineering & Mathematics). The community that brings together extends it as a global resource, powerful and innovative for the key and classic question of teaching and learning! ”.

GeoGebra: Content

GeoGebra: Offers numerous Mathematical Applications

Currently, GeoGebra is available in most Repositories of GNU / Linux Distributions, although also, surely only versions inferior to the version 5 or 6, which can be downloaded from the Download section its website.

However, GeoGebra is a useful multiplatform application, that is, different types of Equipment (Computers, laptops, tablets and mobiles) and Operating Systems (Windows, Mac, Linux, Android, iOS). In addition, it can be used directly from a Web navigator, from its official website. In addition, it is available in Many languages, and includes powerful tools in harmony with a intuitive and agile interface.

Installation

From Repositories

Only the following command should be executed:

apt install geogebra

From the Web (Latest versions available - 5 and 6)

Once downloaded and unzipped, for example, the version 6 source file, currently called «GeoGebra-Linux64-Portable-6-0-579-0»The application executable called must be executed via Terminal (Console) "GeoGebra", as root user and the option "--no-sandbox" if necessary.

Example:

sudo ./GeoGebra

sudo ./GeoGebra --no-sandbox

With those same command commands, a direct link (direct access in the menu) could be created to execute it graphically. For the rest, it only remains to use it and enjoy all the educational potential of this tool.
