TSM - July 2012
Objectives - To support workshop participants to get to grips with geogebra software and demonstrate its uses in the mathematics classroom.
Aims - Participants should observe potential, get practice, be inspired to use it in the classroom!
Content - Learn the basics of creating geometrical figures, measurement and calculation; coordinate geometry and functions for elementary and advance topics.
Some highlights of the 6 hour Geogebra workshop:
We will attempt to explore the following:
- Geometry Basic
- Measurement & Polygon Tools
- Sliders, Varibles and Dynamic Text
- Graph Plotting
- Plotting Tangents
- Combining Geometry with Graphs

Requirements - need java installed and ensure that your browser is java enabled.
- Install and start GeoGebra on your computer.
Applet start - Open a fully functional GeoGebra applet in your web browser. Nothing will be installed on your computer. Good for working on unfamiliar computers provided you have an internet connection – should work on any computer!
Geogebra 4.2 Beta version with CAS
Geogebra 5 Beta version with 3D
Free, attractive interface, relatively easy to use yet powerful.
