This course explores the practical usages of the Geogebra application in teaching. Skills for creating visually interactive user-friendly applets will be developed. Students learn about underlying programming structures/commands and methods of construction -then work to create an online portfolio of demonstrations, games and interactive challenge sets-which will help them to expand the curriculum.

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.
