# Perspectives

## Standard Perspectives

GeoGebra provides a set of standard *Perspectives*. You can easily switch between *Perspectives* using the *Perspectives
Sidebar* (GeoGebra Desktop) or the
*Perspectives Menu* (GeoGebra Web and Tablet Apps). For more information please check out
Selecting a *Perspective*.

### Algebra Perspective

The *Algebra Perspective* consists of the Algebra View and the
Graphics View. By default, the coordinate axes are shown in the
*Graphics View*.
Furthermore, the *Graphics View Toolbar* is displayed at the top of the GeoGebra window. Please note that in *GeoGebra
5.0 Desktop* the *Input Bar* is displayed as well at the bottom of the GeoGebra window while in
the *GeoGebra 5.0 Web and Tablet Apps* an *Input Field* is integrated into the
*Algebra View* (see
Input Bar and Input Field).

### Geometry Perspective

The *Geometry Perspective* displays the *Graphics View* without the coordinate axes, as well as the *Graphics
View Toolbar*.

### Spreadsheet Perspective

The *Spreadsheet Perspective* consists of the Spreadsheet View and the
*Graphics View*. By
default, the coordinate axes are shown in the *Graphics View*. Depending on which of these *Views* is activated, either
the *Graphics View Toolbar* or the *Spreadsheet View Toolbar* are shown at the top of the GeoGebra window.

### CAS Perspective

The *CAS Perspective* consists of the
CAS View and the *Graphics View*. By default, the coordinate axes are shown in the
*Graphics View*. Depending
on which of these *Views* is activated, either the *Graphics View Toolbar* or the *CAS View Toolbar* are shown at the
top of the GeoGebra window.

### 3D Graphics Perspective

The *3D Graphics Perspective* consists of the 3D Graphics View and the
*Algebra View*. By default,
the coordinate axes and the *xOy*-plane are shown in the *3D Graphics View*. Furthermore, the *3D Graphics View Toolbar* is
displayed at the top of the GeoGebra window. Please note that in *GeoGebra 5.0 Desktop* the *Input Bar* is displayed as
well at the bottom of the GeoGebra window while in the *GeoGebra 5.0 Web and Tablet App* an *Input Field* is integrated
into the *Algebra View* (see
Input Bar and Input Field).

### Probability Perspective

The *Probability Perspective* shows the *Probability
Calculator*, which allows you to easily calculate and graph probability distributions.

## Customized Perspectives

GeoGebra allows you to customize its user interface according to the mathematical topic you want to work with. You can
add additional *Views* or other user interface components (e.g. *Input Bar*, second
*Graphics View*) to the
standard *Perspectives* by using the *View Menu* or the
corresponding *Views Button* in the
*Style Bar* (GeoGebra Web and Tablet Apps). Furthermore, you can change the position of some of
these elements using the *Layout* option in the
*Settings Dialog* in GeoGebra Desktop or the
*Drag View Button* in the Web App.
For more information please see Customizing the Layout of the User
Interface.
