Using GeoGebra to Solve Mathematical Olympiad Geometry
Problems
Examples of using
GeoGebra to illustrate and solve geometry problems
from regional and national Mathematical Olympiads. Note that
the encoding for each is XML (MathML+XHTML), best viewed with
FireFox. Also, (at least) Java 1.4 must be enabled in order
to view the embedded Geogebra applet.
