This is the 26th tutorial of the GeoGebra Intermediate Tutorial Series. If this is your first time to use GeoGebra, you might want to read the GeoGebra Essentials Series.
A cycloid is the curve defined by the path of a point on the edge of circular wheel as the wheel rolls along a straight line. In this tutorial, we use GeoGebra to construct a cycloid, the path traced by a rotating circle. In reality, we will not really roll the circle but use mathematics to make it appear is if it is rolling. We will set the amount of rotation to but you can choose to increase it later on.
The output of this tutorial is shown above. Move the slider and observe what happens.

This is the 25th tutorial in the GeoGebra Intermediate Tutorial Series. If this is your first time to use GeoGebra, you might want to read the GeoGebra Essentials Series.
In this tutorial, we use GeoGebra in constructing a rolling circle. This way, we would be able to relate the diameter of the circle to its circumference. Moreover, this activity will reinforce the relationship between the angle and radian measure.

This is the third tutorial of the GeoGebra Intermediate Tutorial Series and the fourth part of the GeoGebra Basic Construction Series. If this is your first time to use GeoGebra, I strongly suggest that you read the GeoGebra Essentials Series. This tutorial, answers the following problem using GeoGebra.
Problem: How will you draw an equilateral triangle without using the Regular polygon tool?
In this tutorial, we mimic compass and straightedge construction using the Circle tool, the Parallel Line tool, the Perpendicular Line tool of GeoGebra to construct a square instead of using the Regular Polygon tool. We will also reinforce the use of the Angle tool, this time, learn how to use it to measure angle using three points. » Read more
