GeoGebra: Do The Math!  Download free content from Maine Department of Education on iTunes
GeoGebra: Do the Math is a series of screencast tutorials for teachers and/or students. The tutorials were initiated as a project to support Maine math teachers in the integration of technology in the classroom. What is GeoGebra provides an overview of the program and its capabilities. Several tutorials present the program’s menu options and tools in stepbystep format. Another group of tutorials provides examples of GeoGebra learning activities in major math content areas. These tutorials are intended as a visual supplement to printed guides and documentation. GeoGebra users can find a wealth of guidance and examples at www.geogebra.org. A web search such as “GeoGebra Pythagorean Theorem” will yield hundreds of additional articles, examples, and applets.
