Algebra Reboot!

This week we have released 4 major new features in the Algebra View of our online Graphing Calculator:

Input and Output Rows

Similar to what we have done in the CAS View since 2011, the Algebra View now shows Input and Output rows for most objects types so that you can see the calculation and the result:

Exact Fractions

To go with the the Input and Output rows, we have added the ability to do exact fraction calculations (like you are used to on regular hand-held calculators)

frac1

If you want the approximate answer, then you can press the arrow button to toggle between approximate and exact.

frac2

Automatic Preview

Another major enhancement is that when you are typing an expression in the Algebra View, you now get a preview in the Graphics View, and you also get a warning triangle when the input is not (yet) correct

Input Help

If you click on the “?” icon then you get quick access to the help for all the commands:

As always you can try out the latest and greatest release here: GeoGebra Graphing Calculator

As you may have noticed, we have been rebranding a little recently so GeoGebraTube has been renamed to GeoGebra Materials, and GeoGebra Math Apps now refers to our whole suite of Apps.
We are also working very hard currently on making GeoGebra Graphing Calculator for iPhone so we will share some more news about that soon (it will look very similar to the Android version which is now at well over 500,000 installs).
