What is a Dynamic Worksheet

A Dynamic Worksheet is an interactive (online) worksheet that combines different elements (e.g. text, applets, videos, images) in a flexible layout (e.g. Square Construction worksheet).

Our Online Worksheet Editor allows you to easily create a Dynamic Worksheet online. Just go to www.geogebra.org, sign in to your GeoGebra Account, and click on New Worksheet in order to get started.
