This paper discusses ways of enhancing the teaching of mathematics through enabling learners to gain stronger links between geometry and algebra. The vehicle for this is consideration of the affordances of GeoGebra, a form of freely-available open-source software that provides a versatile tool for visualising mathematical ideas from elementary through to university level. Following exemplification of teaching ideas using GeoGebra for secondary school mathematics, the paper considers current… Expand
Linking Geometry and Algebra: English and Taiwanese Upper Secondary Teachers' Approaches to the use of GeoGebra
TLDR
This research has investigated English and Taiwanese upper-secondary teachers’ attitudes and practices regarding GeoGebra to gain an understanding of the teachers�’ conceptions of technology and how their pedagogies incorporate dynamic manipulation with Geo Gebra into mathematical discourse. Expand
Teaching Algebra and Geometry with GeoGebra: Preparing Pre-Service Teachers for Middle Grades/Secondary Mathematics Classrooms

Analytic Analysis of Lines with Dynamic Mathematical Software
TLDR
Materials have been prepared for students to learn effectively what kind of a change that the equations and graphs of the lines will go under as the slope of the these lines which cross over the same point changes and the line bundle that will be formed by the lines whichCross over a single point by using GeoGebra which is dynamic software.
