GeoGebra is a free software program (available on Chrome and Windows devices as well as from the website) that lets kids create mathematical constructions and models. They drag objects and adjust parameters to explore algebra and geometry simultaneously. It is both a graphing calculator and a collection of math simulations. GeoGebra offers kids and teachers the option to use existing math explorations or build their own. The existing pool of explorations is vast, so it covers most high school Common Core math expectations, especially those involving graphing or geometry.

Teachers can make their own interactive worksheets that include simulations, videos, text, multiple-choice questions, and more. Teachers can create class groups to quickly share activities with kids. Alternatively, tutorials provide options to let teachers incorporate GeoGebra into their existing class sites or learning management systems. (Description taken from https://www.commonsense.org/education/website/geogebra)

Go to https://www.geogebra.org/ and explore the over 1 million resources available.  You can use one of the existing resources to demonstrate a concept as part of your instruction or build a lesson for students to explore and assign it via Google classroom or a link on your Moodle page.  Geogebra can also be used by students as a graphing calculator or to design 3-D objects for printing.

If you need extra help understanding how to use Geogebra there are several tutorials found at https://www.geogebra.org/a/14
