"I strongly believe that learning can be significantly enhanced when the student learner can be actively engaged in the learning process through discovery and exploration. This tied together with hands-on activities that motivate and challenge the student. This is sometimes referred to as self-directed or student-centered learning, where the student is responsible for his or her learning. Where the student gains knowledge by doing, constructing, inventing..."

Loads of HELP
"GeoGebra is dynamic mathematics software for all levels of education that joins arithmetic, geometry, algebra and calculus. It offers multiple representations of objects in its graphics, algebra, and spreadsheet views that are all dynamically linked. You can do constructions with points, vectors, lines, conic sections as well as functions and change them dynamically afterwards. Furthermore, GeoGebra allows you to directly enter and manipulate equations and coordinates. Thus you can easily plot functions, work with sliders to investigate parameters, find symbolic derivatives, and use powerful commands like Root or Sequence."

Ideal for use in a classroom or on your own, they can even be placed on mobile devices for "homework".
