More information

This course introduces ways in which Geogebra may be useful in the A level Maths classroom. It should be approachable to complete newcomers to the software. The course aims to give participants the skills necessary to produce simple but useful applets that will illustrate concepts from the M1 and M3 units of WJEC Maths.

The course will be delivered through two evening Zoom sessions, separated by a few weeks. Participants will be working with Geogebra during the sessions so they will need to have access, on the computer they are using for the session, to one of versions of Geogebra that can be downloaded (Classic 5 or Classic 6) or to the web version.

Session 1 : Geogebra as a Graphing tool

  • Introducing Geogebra
  • Producing Graphs of functions
  • Investigating gradients and the equation y=mx+c
  • Investigating graphs and equations

Session 2 : Geogebra as a Motivating Tool

  • Exploring Functions and Transformations
  • Increasing, decreasing, convex and concave functions

Session 1: Tuesday 18th October 2022

Session 2: Tuesday 22nd November 2022

The session will start at 6.30pm and last up to 2 hours.
