This article is based on a clipping from research graduate "stricto sensu" entitled The Education of Trigonometric Functions through Software GeoGebra, job completion to obtain the title of Master Profmat (Professional Master's in mathematics in national network). To this study, we sought to address the weaknesses faced by most students when they were studying trigonometric functions sine and cosine. For this, we proposed the use of software GeoGebra in performing a sequence of activities about the content studied. The research was a qualitative approach, based on observations of the activities performed by the students of 2nd year of high school Federal Institute of Rio Grande do Norte - IFRN - Campus Caicó. The activities enabled check some difficulties encountered by students, well as the interaction between them during the tasks. The results were satisfactory, since they indicate that the use of software contributed to a better understanding of these mathematical concepts studied.
