Adding Geogebra files to your hosted Wordpress.com blog for free

You can use a combination of services to allow users to access Geogebra files you’ve created for free through your WordPress blog.

  1. First, sign up for Dropbox and download the application to your computer (or access their service through their website).
  2. Next, download and install Geogebra.
  3. Create an example with Geogebra, and export it to html.
  4. Upload the exported .html file to your Dropbox account (either through the Desktop client or the Dropbox website).
  5. Find the public link to your .html file and copy it.
  6. Insert the link into your WordPress site and update/publish your post.

If you know a little bit of HTML, you can then update the exported .html file with the link back to your blog for a more seamless experience for your blog readers.

See this Geogebra applet (requires Java) of the upper and lower sums for a quadratic function as an example.
