New Ways to Use the Internet in the Math Classroom

Resources for the Classroom

There are many resources out there on the web that will help math come alive for students. The websites, apps and content below are the best ways to help the students understand, grasp and visualize new concepts.


Geogebra

GeoGebra is dynamic geometry software. Constructions can be made with points, vectors, segments, lines, polygons, conic sections, inequalities, implicit polynomials and functions. All of them can be changed dynamically afterwards. Elements can be entered and modified directly on screen, or through the Input Bar. GeoGebra has the ability to use variables for numbers, vectors and points, find derivatives and integrals of functions and has a full complement of commands like Root or Extremum. Teachers and students can use GeoGebra to make conjectures and to understand how to prove geometric theorems.
