Abstract: The computer-based education allows educators and students to use educational programming language and e-tutors to teach and learn, to interact with one another and share together the results of their work. It is done possible by special electronic tools such as the mathematical programmes. One of them that is embraced and used by a daily increasing number of users throughout the world is GeoGebra, because of three main features: the double representation of the mathematical object, there are not strong requirements as to the age and the knowledge in using it and, it is offered free of charge. In this paper we are concentrating in the double representation of the mathematical object and its advantages in explaining and forming mathematical concepts and performing operations, in the global opportunities for using GeoGebra and the benefits of using it by cooperating and sharing experiences.

Keywords: GeoGebra; double representation; virtual tools; dynamic demonstration; computer programming; interactive environment; knowledge sharing; communicative bridge; e-learning; electronic learning; online learning; mathematics education; maths education; math education; mathematical concepts.
