### What is a coordinates system?

This is the first in the series of posts about teaching mathematics and Geogebra tools at the same time. I’m starting with the most basic of the tools in GeoGebra, the point tool. What would be a better context for this than in learning about the coordinate system. Teacher can use the following introduction about…

### Constructing polygons with equal area

The power of GeoGebra lies not only for demonstrating a concept but more so for creating a situation where students are made to think, solve problems, and reason mathematically. Here is a sample lesson on how this can be done. The lesson involves the concept of area of triangles and constructing parallel lines applied to problems…

### Problem on proving perpendicular segments

This problem is a model created to solve the problem posed in the lesson Collapsible. In the figure CF = FB = FE. If C is moved along CB, describe the paths of F and E. Explain or prove that they are so. This problem can be explored using GeoGebra applet.  Click this link to explore…
