Examples of the usage of GeoGebra and some thoughts

Main uses of GeoGebra in the physics classroom

  1. Drawing

  2. Solving ​equations using CAS

  3. ​Analyzing and modeling from data measured or given
  4. Visualizing physical concepts

1. Drawing

Students use GeoGebra for example drawing force diagrams and different situations.
