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.
