Grand Valley State University is offering two one-day workshops on the free dynamic software, GeoGebra. Each day the participants will learn to use the dynamic software and find resources for using it in the classroom. The focus for Tuesday, June 21, 2011 will be Algebraic applications; and the focus for Wednesday, June 22, 2011 will be Geometric applications. Additionally, participants will explore how dynamic representation deepens students’ understanding. They
will be introduced to the GeoGebra wiki, which has example lesson plans and resources for GeoGebra users to explore and use. After the introduction to GeoGebra and individual exploration, each participant will work on an activity of their choice with instructors present for support.
