Softonic review

Flexible and free mathematical software

GeoGebra is a complex but all-in-one application package for users that study or work with arithmetic, geometry, algebra, and calculus. This education and reference desktop program is filled with dynamic mathematics software that is suitable for any level of academic needs

It is created to be an open-source project that students and teachers can utilize as well as distribute free of charge. For big organizations, on the other hand, a commercial license is available to be purchased. If you are looking for a completely free math literacy companion, SageMath will suffice you more.

What is GeoGebra used for?

This academic tool is a rather complicated application that is aimed strictly at those comfortable with difficult math. Speaking of which, the advantage GeoGebra can offer over similar apps is that it provides multiple representations of objects that are all dynamically linked. The idea is to connect geometric, algebraic, and numeric representations in an interactive way. 

Moreover, this can be done with points, vectors, lines, and conic sections also. It allows you to directly enter and manipulate equations as well as coordinates. In return, you will then be able to plot functions, work with sliders to investigate parameters, find symbolic derivatives, and even use powerful commands like Root or Sequence

How do I install GeoGebra?

There are actually two versions of GeoGebra that you can download for your Windows desktop—GeoGebra Classic 5 and GeoGebra Classic 6. If you wish to use a mathematical platform with a standard user interface, GeoGebra Classic 5 is the one you are looking for. 

If you want a version that is packed with Graphing, CAS, Geometry, 3D Graphing, Spreadsheet, Probability Calculator, and Exam mode, GeoGebra Classic 6 will suit your needs best. Both of this software solution offers a portable file that you can easily run from USB memory sticks. Bear in mind though that this file version doesn't provide an automatic update thus, you have to do it manually by yourself.  

Not for the beginners

GeoGebra isn't an ideal mathematical program for users that are starting to learn about the mathematics field as this will be an extremely challenging platform to begin with. However, if you already are experienced and usually deal with arithmetic, geometry, algebra, and calculus on a regular basis, it is very flexible to utilize. This is an advanced educational tool that will help you improve and practice your mathematical skills

  • Covers arithmetic, geometry, algebra and calculus
