GeoGebra (www.geogebra.org) is free, multi-platform, open-source dynamic mathematics software with rapidly growing worldwide popularity. The basic idea of the software is to join dynamic geometry, algebra, and calculus, which other packages treat separately, into a single easy-to-use package for learning and teaching mathematics from elementary through university level. GeoGebra offers the powerful opportunity for teachers to create interactive online learning environments which have led many teachers to foster experimental and discovery learning for their students. An extensive self-supporting user community shares free interactive teaching materials on the GeoGebraWiki, supports fellow users through a user forum, and has translated GeoGebra to 36 languages. In this poster presentation, we will both present applications of the software and plans for its future development, as well as raise some of the implications of technological developments such as GeoGebra for the pre-service education and inservice professional development of teachers of mathematics.

Research suggests that despite the numerous benefits of using technology in mathematics education, the process of embedding technology in classrooms is slow and complex (Cuban, Kirkpatrick, & Peck, 2001). GeoGebra is open-source software for mathematics teaching and learning that offers geometry, algebra and calculus features in a fully connected and easy-to-use software environment. It is available free of charge and used by thousands of students and teachers around the world in classrooms and at home. In this presentation we will both present applications of GeoGebra for calculus teaching at the high school and college level, as well as raise some of the implications of free and easy-to-use software such as GeoGebra for technology integration into the teaching and learning of calculus.
