Post 16 Students Discover GeoGebra 4/10/21
Post 16 students have been studying GeoGebra in Mathematics recently. GeoGebra is a simple but powerful tool which can be used by students to understand Mathematics concepts, to help solve problems and to check solutions. Students have discovered that GeoGebra can be used for statistics, probability, geometry, trigonometry, algebra and functions. They found that they can use GeoGebra to actively, and through the sharing of the work online, socially construct an understanding of geometry. Teachers have introduced this programme to allow for simple visualisations of possibly complex geometric concepts, which has helped enhance our Post 16 students’ understanding of those concepts. The photograph shows this method being used in a recent Post 16 Mathematics lesson.
