About GeoGebra

GeoGebra is a free, dynamic, easy to use Maths software package. It used by teachers and students in classrooms all around the world to promote enquiry-based learning in Maths and to support a constructivist approach to learning.  GeoGebra provides a platform for students to become independent learners and take ownership to their Maths. To download the GeoGebra app or to use GeoGebra online please visit the GeoGebra website. There is also a virtual platform, GeoGebra Classroom, through which teachers can assign interactive tasks for students, monitor student progress and facilitate student discussion and a set of accompanying remote learning templates.

If you would like additional support on the effective use of GeoGebra in the classroom please contact us at postprimarymaths@pdst.ie.

GeoGebra Resources

There are a selection of GeoGebra Classic 6 resources listed below that have been developed by the Post-Primary Maths Team. The intention is that in highlighting these examples, you might identify ideas you feel will work for your students and your context, take these ideas and apply them when you’re teaching other topics in Maths.

There is a padlet of GeoGebra resources which is updated regularly that may be of use. In this padlet you will find a selection of GeoGebra files arranged by topic along with tasks that can be assigned to help students engage with a Mathematical concept. The video below outlines how you can use this padlet to get your students started with GeoGebra.
