# WAYS OF LINKING GEOMETRY AND ALGEBRA: THE CASE OF GEOGEBRA

@inproceedings{Hohenwarter2007WAYSOL, title={WAYS OF LINKING GEOMETRY AND ALGEBRA: THE CASE OF GEOGEBRA}, author={Markus Hohenwarter and Keith Jones}, year={2007} }

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
