Some studies stated that mathematical ideas sometimes could be derived through a cultural-based habit or activities. Including how the Osing, Banyuwangi tribal ethnic in Indonesia structure their house by using a simple geometrical concept. This study tries to explore more how university students who struggling in making sense two dimension shapes concepts can be inspired by observing how Osing people doing a simple mathematical explanation in building their traditional house. Besides, as one of dynamic software that dedicated specially to help in understanding algebra and geometry altogether, GeoGebra software seems to be a great idea to be integrated into university level geometry learning. To that end, a study was conducted in order to know how the Osing ways in structuring their house can help some mathematics education students at University of Jember to do a better way in making sense of two dimensional shapes concepts. After doing some research phases, a positive response related to the use of GeoGebra is achieved and the use of GeoGebra during their geometry lesson can help in setting up effective geometry learning.
