Learn and teach geometry and algebra with GeoGebra

Thanks for brining this tool to light for the general public; i.e. Linux users and potential Fossed users. I have used GeoGebra for over a year now in the high school geometry courses I teach. Normally I use Geogebra in conjunction with an ActiveBoard, for lecture demonstrations and to promote student interaction with geometric constructions. I have found it to be equal to or superior to Geometer's Sketchpad for the same purposes. The fact that the deep connections between Euclidian geometry and coordinate geometry are demonstrated in real time make it particularly suited to the mathematics classroom.
