Geogebra intro

July 16, 2014


I am really happy with Notebook 2014. It is faster and the inclusion of Response VE and Extreme collaboration make this learning tool really versatile.

GeoGebra is another great addition, although I have a lot of learning to do before I will be able to use it well. My focus this week has been to explore the app.

You will find it when you click on the Add-Ins Tab (the puzzle piece  Geogebra_1   ).

Click on the GeoGebra icon  Geogebra_2    to start the application. (Note: I found I could not load it without temporarily disabling my virus protection so I worked on it at home.)

After clicking on the Geogebra_3application icon, click on the search toolGeogebra_4   at the top right of the Notebook page and you will go directly to GeoGebra Tube where you can browse, select and insert a GeoGebra worksheet. To do this, click on the worksheet you want and then click on Insert.



Happy Learning!

Activity Card of the Month – July 2014

July 2, 2014

Happy July everyone! Here is the second activity card in the series of SMART Board activities. I will post one a month for a year. If you like them, I will make some more so let me know!

In this exercise, you will learn to make white out so that you can hide and reveal important points in a paragraph, hide certain letters in a word or cover up an entire sentence allowing the students to figure out what is missing or come up with their own ideas. Maybe you will have some interesting ideas. Let’s share ideas.
