GeoGebra for The iPad
The GeoGebra for the iPad project is a new project for the development of a GeoGebra App for iPads. The project needs funding, so you may want to back GeoGebra’s Kickstarter Project.
Congratulations to the new GeoGebra Ambassadors: Sanjay Gulati (India), Steve Phelps (USA) of the GeoGebra Institute of Ohio, John Golden (USA), and Juan Pablo Echaverria (Costa Rica).
GeoGebra 4.2 is nearly finished. The development team is just making finishing touches. You may try the webstart version of the release candidate here and the offline installers here.
GeoGebraTube and Official Blog
GeoGebraTube has now more than 14,000 applets that can be downloaded for and used for free. You may also want to follow GeoGebra’s official blog to keep up to date to the latest tips, tricks, and news.
Before I became a GeoGebra user, I used The Geometer’s Sketchpad. I migrated to GeoGebra because aside from it is free, it is more friendly to students. Geometer’s Sketchpad requires a little mathematical maturity and knowledge of geometric constructions. I still like Geometer’s Sketchpad, GeoGebra is getting and better.
Last month, I have shared to you more than 12000 free dynamic applets from GeoGebraTube and more than a year ago, I have also mentioned more than 7000 demonstrations from Wolfram. To add to the list of dynamic geometry resources, The Geometer’s Sketchpad has also created its library of “sketches” in Sketch Exchange. Sketch Exchange as of this writing has more than 500 sketches available. Just like GeoGebraTube and Wolfram Demonstrations, it is a place where GSP users can share sketches, tips, and tutorials.
Most of the sketches in Sketch Exchange requires Geometer’s Sketchpad 5.05, a free upgrade if you have Sketchpad 5.
GeoGebraTube, the official applet repository site of GeoGebra, has now more than 12000 GeoGebra applets after a year it has gone live — thanks to GeoGebraists all over the world.
Applets in GeoGebraTube can be downloaded (including the GGB file), embedded in blogs or websites, or shared to colleagues and friends using social media sites.
Recently, the site has also allowed Google, Facebook, and Twitter login making it even more accessible to a lot of users. Of course, the old GeoGebra Forum login name and password can still be used.
