• Keynote - GeoGebra

1. 1. GeoGebra in Math Education A Global Community Presented by Linda Fahlberg-Stojanovska
2. 2. Dynamic Mathematics for Everyone What does this mean? • Dynamic Mathematics Interactive software that helps visualize and understand mathematics Simple interface, powerful mathematics
3. 3. Dynamic Mathematics for Everyone What does this mean? • for Everyone FOSS (free and open source software) Translatable (and already translated into more than 50 languages by volunteers)
4. 4. • FOSS (Free and open source software) http://geogebra.org • Can be downloaded for all platforms • Can be used on school LANs directly via a web browser (no install) • Can be used offline Why GeoGebra?
7. 7. Project -Dynamic Square – Make a regular polygon with 4 sides 7
8. 8. Dynamic Square • Definitions of a square? – Regular polygon with 4 sides • GeoGebra: Regular polygon tool 8
9. 9. Dynamic Square – With active • Click once to get Point A. • Click again to get Point B. • Dialog box will open … 4 is there… click on OK. 9
10. 10. Square Dynamics – CLICK on the Move tool – You can click and drag point A or point B. – The square is ALWAYS a square. 10
11. 11. Square Dynamics – You can click and drag the square itself. This will only move the square - the dimensions of the square depend on A and B! - Try to click and drag point C or point D. – Why can’t you click and drag points C or D? – Answer: They are dependent on A and B. 11
12. 12. • Many, many applications – Ready to use applets are available. – Is easy to use, powerful and dynamic. – Teachers can use it to better understand what they are teaching. – Teachers and students can freely use it anywhere. – Students can build animations, simulators, … Why GeoGebra?
13. 13. • Ready-to-use applet activities are available. Why GeoGebra? http://geogebramath.org/lms/nav/activity.jsp?sid=__shared&cid=emready@k_7 _measurement_and_geometry&lid=6
14. 14. • Teachers/Students can use it to better understand Why GeoGebra? http://geogebramath.org/lms/nav/activity.jsp?sid=__shared &cid=emready@linda_s_calculus_class&lid=2
15. 15. • Many, many applications – Students can do great things! • Challenge http://madeiramath2.wikispaces.com/Weekly+GeoGebra+Construction+Challenges • Result – Incredible student creativity – http://madeiramath2.wikispaces.com/James+OC+Portfolio+Page • Credit: Steve Phelps, HS Teacher Why GeoGebra?
