GeoGebra, a free, open-source, dynamic mathematics software, is rapidly gaining popularity in the teaching and learning of mathematics around the world. Currently, GeoGebra is translated to 58 languages, used in 190 countries, and downloaded by approximately 400,000 users in each month, and clearly making an impact on mathematics education in most countries. This increased use compelled the establishment of the International GeoGebra Institute (IGI) that serves as a virtual organization to support local GeoGebra initiatives and institutes. There are already 99 institutes in 75 countries, which pursue training and support of teachers, develop teaching materials, and carry out research projects. In this talk, I will outline the directions of GeoGebra software development, its extension to STEM subjects, activities of its community, and the work of GeoGebra Institutes.

This presentation introduces the recent work of GeoGebra Institute of Hong Kong on teacher training, resources development and collaborative studies. I will present how we develop GeoGebra tasks to cater for the learning needs identified in our system assessments and collaborative studies through the fostering of visualization and reasoning in GeoGebra. The presentation will be illustrated by some resources in our depository on the topics quadrilaterals, multiplication and division of fractions, and the concept of slope.
