East of England Mathematics Teacher Network

Using GeoGebra Classroom in A level Maths and Further Maths

Overview

The East of England Mathematics Teacher Network is an AMSP-funded project allowing teachers of maths to meet, to collaborate and to share professional development. We meet regularly and the programme is a mixture of interactive discussion and speaker-led training events.

Content

In this meeting we will aim to demonstrate how to use GeoGebra classroom activities in A level and Further Maths and how teachers can adapt, create and set them for their students.

GeoGebra is a very powerful dynamic graphing tool that can be used to visualise many of the concepts in A level Maths such as functions, calculus and trigonometry. It is also especially useful for Further Maths as it has tools for complex numbers, matrices, 3D Geometry and polar curves.

The new GeoGebra Classroom feature allows you to easily share activities with classes of students and review their interactions and responses. This is an ideal tool to suit learning in classrooms or remotely. In this session we will demonstrate how to create and assign GeoGebra Classroom activities as well as considering how you can integrate these into your teaching. This session is suitable for those who already have some familiarity with basic curve plotting in GeoGebra.

The session leader is Tom Button who is the AMSP Technology Professional Development Lead and can be found on Twitter: @mathstechnology.
