This is a beginner’s introductory session on the free software, GeoGebra. In this session participants will see how GeoGebra can be used as an effective tool for supporting a visual and interactive mathematics pedagogy that emphasises conceptual understanding rather than processes. Participants will be shown a demonstration of how GeoGebra can be utilised in the classroom when teaching Quadratic Transformations, Trigonometry and the Unit Circle, Pythagoras’ Theorem and Geometry. It will also include some ways teachers can enhance student understanding by using pre-programmed applets within GeoGebra, as well as involving students in the creation process by getting them to create their own GeoGebra files. The skills learnt in this presentation can be applied to all secondary year levels. Participants will be required to download and install the free GeoGebra Classic software from https://www.geogebra.org/download.
Locations:Workshop presented live at MAV, at various hubs and online. If you cannot attend any of the listed hubs, you may also participate via the Polycom app (for this option indicate “non-hub”). Please note when registering that you indicate the appropriate venue.
