#### Abstract

Learning geometry has not paid attention to aspects of mathematical ability with maximum so that learning outcomes are also not optimal. Technology has been developing with one of them is the emergence of geogebra software version 6.0 which can help the process learning mathematics but not yet utilized in learning. This research aims to determine the magnitude of the increase in activity and learning achievement in mathematics on geometry using geogebra software. The method used is action class research method consists of two cycles. The analysis used in this research is comparative descriptive analysis by comparing data between the cycles. Geogebra is used to visualize the geometry object to be transformed. Through a visualization process, students try, reason, and finally can find the concept of transformation. The result shows an increase in student activity during the learning. Test results for each cycle shows an increase in the number of students who reach the minimum completeness criteria. On the condition of the end of the cycle of students who are complete in learning reaches 85,24%. Based on this then learning by using geogebra software can improve abilities mathematical.
