Math Tools for Google Chrome

GeoGebra, Desmos, and gMath are outstanding mathematics tools that are available as Google Chrome Web Apps or Add-ons with Google Drive integration. This means that students can create and explore with these free web-based mathematical tools with the added benefit of Google Drive’s sharing capabilities and anywhere access.

GeoGebra (geogebra.org) is dynamic geometry software, similar to Geometer’s Sketchpad. Desmos (desmos.com) is a beautiful, browser based graphing calculator that makes traditional graphing calculators look like a slide rule.

In this hands on session you will be learn how to get started with each of these apps, along with some examples how how they can be incorporated into your mathematics curriculum.
