This course explores the basic usages of the Geogebra application and the mechanics of its implementation in the math classroom -which shall include how it fits within Google Sites and Google Classroom (or platforms of your choosing). By learning about the available tools and complex strategies of construction students develop skills for creating user-friendly applets and work to create the beginnings of an online portfolio of interactive demonstrations and student made geometric calculators.

I am a high school math teacher of almost 20 years experience who was introduced to the Geogebra Application about ten years ago. I had always wanted to make my curriculum more dynamic but up to that point never knew how. To that point in my career, all of my curriculum involved static images. So when I learned to use the Geogebra application, Curriculum Development became exciting. I thought with excitement --Is it possible to do this?! --I wonder if you could do that?! I was (and am) convinced that a dynamic creation which allows for manipulation of geometric figures and provides automatic feedback is superior to one that doesn't. As a long time Special Needs teacher I started off by creating Dynamic Demonstrations and then realised that Games would be a great way for students to practice skills. Over the past few years, (in my work with Regular Ed. & Honours level students) I have seen how Geogebra can easily challenge students with their logic and reasoning, with their ability to create/construct and with their ability to problem solve. Besides improving the curriculum, the program has made me a better teacher as it has helped me to see the content in new ways. The questions I ask are now more complex than they ever were before. I am convinced that jumping in to learn the Geogebra Application was the smartest move I ever made as a teacher and I am excited by the opportunity to help other teachers learn the program.
