Big News For GeoGebra Users!

GeoGebra, the dynamic geometry software, has just released a major update: version 5.0.9.0-3D. What makes this version really special is its 3D plotting capabilities. When you first start it up, you immediately notice the Perspective menu is different:

Clicking on the 3D Graphics option brings up a new set of tools and menus across the top, as well as a 3D axis system:

I’ve just begun playing around with it, but after a few minutes, I was able to create a plane intersecting a cone:

I am really impressed with the power and features of this version, and I hope someone is putting together a manual with tutorials. This is like an entirely new piece of software!

You can download the latest version of GeoGebra here. Did I mention it’s free? 🙂
