Web Enhanced Instruction with GeoGebra: Creating and Using Applets without Learning Flash or Java

Russell Blyth and Michael May, S.J.
July 11 – 15, 2011
Online

Registration Fee: $100 per person ($150 for registrations received after May 30, 2011)

GeoGebra is an easy-to-use, free, cross-platform program that allows users to create demonstrations and exploration tools with both geometric and algebraic representations. These can be saved as applets, for use by either the instructor or students. The workshop will include:

• An exploration of the capabilities of GeoGebra, with a focus on creating example demonstrations for a variety of courses;

• Demonstration of the techniques for producing effective applets and incorporating them into web pages;

• Discussion of pedagogical issues in effectively incorporating applets into your courses.

In the following academic year, participants will be expected to produce at least two GeoGebra activities
for classes they teach and to share them with the workshop. We also expect participants will have learned
enough to introduce at least one colleague to GeoGebra. No previous knowledge of the software is assumed.
