Teaching with GeoGebra – Investigating coordinates of points

The most basic mathematics students need to know to understand GeoGebra is the coordinate axes. Must you teach students how to plot points and interpret coordinates of points before they use GeoGebra or the other way around? I think, at the same time. Below is a sample activity on how I think this can be…

Teaching with GeoGebra: Squares and Square Roots

This post outlines a teaching sequence for introducing the concept of square roots in a GeoGebra environment. Of course you can do the same activity using grid papers, ruler and calculator. However, if the students have access to computers then I highly recommend that you use GeoGebra to do this. In my post GeoGebra and…

GeoGebra, Calculator, and Mathematics

GeoGebra is a dynamic mathematics software for teaching and learning mathematics. As tool for the teaching part is pretty easy to do. But the learning part, well, that’s always been the one that is problematic, GeoGebra or not GeoGebra. Studies about integration of technology in teaching and learning have always acknowledged that despite the availability…
