Introductory Geogebra
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.
Activities
We will attempt to explore the following:
A: Geometry
 Geometry Basic
 Measurement & Polygon Tools
 Sliders, Varibles and Dynamic Text

Transformations
B : Graphing
 Graph Plotting
 Plotting Tangents
 Commands
 Combining Geometry with Graphs

Downloading
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
Why Geogebra?
Free, attractive interface, relatively easy to use yet powerful.
Large active and supportive community geogebra forum. Twitter users should check out #geogebra
Huge catalogue of ready to use applets geogebratube
Here are some of my favourite Geogebra applets. I hope will will be able to add to these over the next three days!
