Today's software is GeoGebra. It's a collection of free software and online math tools for Graphing Calculator, Geometry, 3D Graphing, Augmented Reality, Graphing, Spreadsheet, Probability, CAS (A software program that facilitates symbolic mathematics - Yes, I had to look it up.).
I was amazed by everything that you can download and do at the website. All of it for free. There are lesson plans for teachers from Elementary grade level to College Prep and College level. There are fun exercises.
The FAQs, User Help and User Forum are all up-to-date, easy to navigate, and well done. As a person who deals with a lot of Linux software sites, I was incredibly jealous of their FAQs and User Help. If GIMP was that organized Photoshop would be out of business.
Go to the GeoGebra website or click on the FB link and check them out. You will be amazed at what they have available for free.
Free Friday is here!
PDFs. Can't live with 'em, can't live without 'em. Adobe has been the ruler in the land of PDFs for nearly as long as computers have existed, mostly because it distributed its PDF Reader with new computers.
Now Adobe no longer has downloadable software and pretty much only offers PDF software as a monthly subscription. I'm sure that we all wish them well. 😐
Thankfully, there's a new kid in town. Icecream Apps! They have made the perfect PDF app for Windows. Seriously. I hate PDFs (admittedly that was because of the bloated, klunky, unintuitive Adobe programs). But this program might change my mind about them. I sat down with it last night and was able to create and edit PDFs without breaking a sweat or reading an instruction manual.
Can you imagine what I could do if I read the directions?
There are tons of features without the bloat. There are too many to list here. The download and installation is a breeze straight from the site.
Uninstall Adobe and get Ice Cream PDF Editor now. Go on. You really should. And while you are there, check out their other apps. I'm pretty sure I need some of the others.
