Announcing a New Education Widget: GeoGebra!

Math teachers rejoice: one of your favorite online tools now comes embedded right in your Wikispaces page! We’re very pleased to announce a new Widget available in the Education Gallery: GeoGebra.

GeoGebra

GeoGebra is a free, multi-platform online tool that allows students to visualize mathematical concepts. Now you can integrate GeoGebraTube materials directly into your wiki! GeoGebraTube is a repository of dynamic mathematics teaching and learning materials created and shared by GeoGebra users. Teachers and students search this database to view, download, revise, create and share worksheets with others.

To embed one of these resources in your wiki, go to “Edit” and “Widget” on any of your wiki pages and choose “Education” the “Geogebra” to find pages and pages of interactive student “worksheets” that embed beautifully on your wiki. Amazingly, GeoGebraTube averages 100 new pieces of material every day and has had 22 million visitors since its launch 18 months ago, with some applets receiving more than 100,000 views, exemplified by a Hong Kong based user with 129,000+ views for a worksheet on area of circles.

Want to give it a try? Open up your Math project page or assignment page and add a GeoGebra widget, like “Dissecting a Quadrilateral,” press “Save,” and start clicking away. If you press the Gear to the right of the widget before inserting, you can control its size, labeling and other customizations. You can even preview before embedding.

The GeoGebra Education widget joins a growing list of interactive widgets you can embed into you wiki. Let us know in the comments below or on Twitter which is your favorite, and stay tuned for more!

    GeoGebra, contribuye al buen uso de las Tecnlogías de la Información y comunicación “TIC”, como es acabar con el copiar y pegar, las esperas de los promotores de libros.

    Couldn’t seem to get it to work. I pressed on the selection eg pythagoras and it came up with questions and instructions but the graphics box was empty and only had a red cross in the upper left corner?

    GeoGebra is a wonderful tool. I have used it so often to create images and graphs for my website http://www.ipracticemath.com/. It was extremely helpful for me especially when it came to creating graphs for trigonometric functions. Thanks for the ease and this post!
