Abstract

The purpose of this study was to investigate the trends of GeoGebra related studies. We focused on the articles published between 2009 and 2021 and existed in Web of Science database. The bibliometric analysis of the GeoGebra related articles exposed four-clustered structure according to the degree of relationships among terms that reflect the articles. The clusters were identified as learner anatomy (the use of GeoGebra to improve students' mathematics learning), teaching analytics (the role of GeoGebra in mathematics teaching), technological focus (the technological and procedural issues), and conceptual extension (the attempts considering the features of GeoGebra, mathematics topics and skills). This study offers evidence to show trends and practices in GeoGebra related studies, as well as to clarify their relationships with other concepts. The investigation into GeoGebra's dynamics would help researchers, teachers, students, and policymakers gain insight into areas that need further research, as well as plan for future studies.
