This course is a Project Based Learning approach to skills practice in the Math Classroom. By using a set of 12 steps that can be applied to any math skill (plotting/graphing/evaluating/ computation), this course prepares teachers to teach their students to create skill building math games. Teachers must interpret how the game-making process which involves problem-solving, construction and programming will be received by their students. They must then create a set of lessons (with supporting materials) to be delivered throughout their school year which will (eventually and to a certain degree) turn the Game-Making process over to their students.

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.
