GeoGebra is a website that allows students to create their own shapes and graphs. I will use it in the classroom to help students discover how a graph is changed just by tweaking the equation. GeoGebra can be downloaded as an app on Apple and Windows devices and can be accessed anywhere for free. As a teacher, I can also access worksheets and different material from fellow teachers.
In class, my students will work with GeoGebra on a regular basis. It is a great way for my students to discover mathematical concepts on their own instead of just from my lecture. GeoGebra provides students with multiple tools to explore and gives a sense of independence. Like me, I imagine my students would rather do their own exploring and make their own conclusions.
I will also use GeoGebra on my SMARTboard so that all students can see the same thing. GeoGebra is a great way for me to model exactly what a graph should like without me having to draw it (because my graph drawing is not the best).
Welcome to Mrs. Fowler's classroom blog! We appreciate your visit. This is an interactive blog for my high school mathematics classroom which I plan to use from time to time. The posts include content about teaching mathematics in grades 9th -12th and information about tools we can use in the classroom. This blog is for my use, as the teacher, and also for the use of my students.
On this blog, we will demonstrate acceptance of all students. There will be no bullying, name-calling, or intimidation. This is a safe environment for all students including all diverse learners and students with different learning styles. We will be humble and kind and will respond in a respective manner.
