There are many applications of computer informatics like in computations, plotting graphics to use them in math papers and to study the properties of the functions, in solving and discussing problems of mathematics or physics, in economics, in social topics and so on. This paper presents the topic of how much the computer programs (while we are studying something or making some trials by manipulating) help the teacher in finding answer for different mathematical problems or for the formulation of mathematical statements or facts (in other fields of science, as well). We are presenting here several examples in order that teachers and students have them into consideration while using computer programs to teach and learn. It is important that the teachers and the students try themselves again these examples and others by manipulating with computer programs, making trials and keeping notes in order to find out that there are limitations in the computer programs. The computer program used is Geogebra.
