Web App Reviews: Geogebra Watch our video review: As a previous math teacher, I believe math can and should be fun. One way to make math fun is to make it hands-on, interactive, and inquiry based. Then instead of simply telling students a formula or rule, the students can discover it themselves, and really understand and own the ideas. A great tool to help teachers accomplish this is GeoGebra, a free online web app for interactive geometry. With GeoGebra students can work with points, lines, angles, polygons, equations, reflections, transformations, statistics, and more. As an example for use, instead of telling students that all angles of a triangle add up to 180 degrees, you could have them discover and verify this. For more great ideas on how to use GeoGebra in class, check out their videos at: Math can be a highly interactive subject full of inquiry and discovery. GeoGebra integrates with Google Drive. Install the Geogebra web app from the Chrome Web Store.
