The article is focused on the importance of information and communication technologies used in mathematical education. Currently there are many different geometric software for computers and tablets. These programs allow users to draw geometric shapes and allow them to dynamically change their shapes. We created an interactive course in Learning Management System Moodle for Graph theory, where we used interactive applets created by mathematical software GeoGebra. GeoGebra is a free and multi-platform software for all levels of education. GeoGebra contains quite enough tools that can be used in teaching how to create graphs. In case that the users need a tool that GeoGebra doesn't have, they can create this tool themselves. The article describes the possibility of using JavaScript programming language in mathematical software GeoGebra. We will show you the results of our research if our course for Graph theory increases students’ interest in mathematics.
