ABSTRACT

By exploring objectives related to the new Common Core State Math Standards using GeoGebra software, students can learn about mathematics concepts in a meaningful and intriguing way. This paper will explore GeoGebra files that the authors found useful in teaching many math concepts to students K-12. Interactive technology like GeoGebra can help motivate learners to enjoy learning mathematics while connecting both mathematics to the real world. The paper will show educators how to access and use pre-made GeoGebra files. Math teachers need to realize that in an age of focusing on Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) fields, it is critical that we encourage and stimulate young people in mathematics classes through technology such as GeoGebra. Today there are thousands of pre-made GeoGebra ggb files that teachers can use to electrify, motivate, and teach with to help students better learn and understand mathematics concepts without reinventing the wheel.
