GeoGebra provides a set of standard Perspectives. You can easily switch between Perspectives using the Perspectives Sidebar (GeoGebra Desktop) or the Perspectives Menu (GeoGebra Web and Tablet Apps). For more information please check out Selecting a Perspective.
Algebra Perspective
The Algebra Perspective consists of the Algebra View and the Graphics View. By default, the coordinate axes are shown in the Graphics View. Furthermore, the Graphics View Toolbar is displayed at the top of the GeoGebra window. Please note that in GeoGebra 5.0 Desktop the Input Bar is displayed as well at the bottom of the GeoGebra window while in the GeoGebra 5.0 Web and Tablet Apps an Input Field is integrated into the Algebra View (see Input Bar and Input Field).
Geometry Perspective
The Geometry Perspective displays the Graphics View without the coordinate axes, as well as the Graphics View Toolbar.
Spreadsheet Perspective
The Spreadsheet Perspective consists of the Spreadsheet View and the Graphics View. By default, the coordinate axes are shown in the Graphics View. Depending on which of these Views is activated, either the Graphics View Toolbar or the Spreadsheet View Toolbar are shown at the top of the GeoGebra window.
CAS Perspective
The CAS Perspective consists of the CAS View and the Graphics View. By default, the coordinate axes are shown in the Graphics View. Depending on which of these Views is activated, either the Graphics View Toolbar or the CAS View Toolbar are shown at the top of the GeoGebra window.
3D Graphics Perspective
The 3D Graphics Perspective consists of the 3D Graphics View and the Algebra View. By default, the coordinate axes and the xOy-plane are shown in the 3D Graphics View. Furthermore, the 3D Graphics View Toolbar is displayed at the top of the GeoGebra window. Please note that in GeoGebra 5.0 Desktop the Input Bar is displayed as well at the bottom of the GeoGebra window while in the GeoGebra 5.0 Web and Tablet App an Input Field is integrated into the Algebra View (see Input Bar and Input Field).
Probability Perspective
The Probability Perspective shows the Probability Calculator, which allows you to easily calculate and graph probability distributions.
Customized Perspectives
GeoGebra allows you to customize its user interface according to the mathematical topic you want to work with. You can add additional Views or other user interface components (e.g. Input Bar, second Graphics View) to the standard Perspectives by using the View Menu or the corresponding Views Button in the Style Bar (GeoGebra Web and Tablet Apps). Furthermore, you can change the position of some of these elements using the Layout option in the Preferences Dialog in GeoGebra Desktop or the Drag View Button in the Web App. For more information please see Customizing the Layout of the User Interface.
