Extended Abstract

GeoGebra (http://geogebra.org), a free, open-source, dynamic mathematics software, is rapidly gaining popularity in the teaching and learning of mathematics around the world.  GeoGebra started as a masters' thesis by Markus Hohenwarter in 2002. After ten years, 35 developers, many contributors, translators have made it one of the biggest open source educational programs.  In 2012 GeoGebraTube was released with version 4.0 of the software. GeoGebraTube is a website, where applets created in GeoGebra can be uploaded straight from the program. This makes it easier to share materials online.  Last year we released GeoGebraWeb, an html5 version of the program, which runs in the web browser. So it can be used on desktop/laptop computers, tablets, or even smartphones. We are working on a tablet (iPad, Android and Windows8) version of GeoGebra.  Currently, GeoGebra is translated to more than 44 languages, used in 190 countries, and downloaded by approximately 500,000 users each month, and clearly making an impact on mathematics education. The strength of the software development is its community.
 

Lead Presenter

After finishing secondary school I started studying mathematics. Soon at the university I realized how great it is to help somebody understand mathematics. So I decided to become a mathematics teacher. I teach mathematics at Eotvos Lorand University and at Budai Kozepiskola in Budapest, Hungary.

As a mathematics teacher I always liked using computers and technology. This is how I started using GeoGebra (free, open source) on my lessons to visualize and help my pupils understand mathematics better. After using it on my lessons, I wanted to do more, so I joined the GeoGebra team. I am now the community manager of GeoGebra. Teaching and using GeoGebra in my daily teaching practice and managing the online and offline GeoGebra community makes me one of the happiest teachers on the planet.

At home my wife and three lovely kids are waiting for me. More information at LinkedIn
