GeoGebra Classic Portable, dynamic mathematics for learning and teaching!
"GeoGebra is interactive and challenging, but kids might get frustrated and give up if they don't get clear directions." —Emily Pohlonski, (May 2013)
"GeoGebra is an impressive geometry and calculus exploratory tool. I tend to use it as an exploratory tool when I need something quick. ...more intelligent than MS Math 4.0, ...but the audience for each product is not exactly the same. Having the 2 products will give you some excellent tools for exploring mathematics." —Murray Bourne, (19 Feb 2015)
"GeoGebra is a fantastic tool for math students of all ages from elementary school to higher ed. The learning curve is a little bit steep if you or your students are going to create your own material, but there are also thousands of resources available that you can use right away!" —Kirsten Babin, (12/17/2014)
GeoGebra is a free software program that lets kids create mathematical constructions and models.  They drag objects and adjust parameters to explore algebra and geometry simultaneously.
