Louisiana university recognized for use of free math software


The University of Louisiana-Monroe (ULM) is using a free online application called GeoGebra to help students visualize abstract math concepts, reports the Monroe News Star—and the school is one of four in the United States to be recognized as a “GeoGebra Institute” by the GeoGebra organization. GeoGebra combines geometry, algebra, tables, graphing, statistics, and calculus into one online tool. It has received several educational software awards in Europe and the U.S., according to its web site.
“GeoGebra is a free interactive online application that makes ‘active visualization’ of mathematics possible,” said Dr. Mike Beutner, assistant professor of instructional technology and the group’s coordinator. “ULM’s new GeoGebra Institute will focus on making mathematics education more engaging in the great state of Louisiana.”
