GeoGebra Classic provides the following Perspectives for mathematical objects:
1. Toolbar Image Graphing
2. Toolbar Image Geometry
3. Toolbar Image Spreadsheet
4. Toolbar Image CAS
5. Toolbar Image 3D Graphics
6. Toolbar Image Probability
Each Perspective offers its own Toolbar that contains a selection of Tools and range of Commands as well as Predefined Functions and Operators that allow you to create dynamic constructions with different representations of mathematical objects.
