GeoGebra Webinar Series
Published:February 11, 2013
MLTI has an upcoming series of four 1 hour webinars that will support middle and secondary level educators using the free application GeoGebra for mathematics teaching and learning.
Webinar topics include:
1) building technical expertise with built-in features, tools, and commands;
2) using GeoGebra to support the representation, analysis, and discussion of data;
3) modifying existing GeoGebra applets; and
4) creating your own applets and hosting them online.
Educators do not need to attend all sessions, although sessions 3 and 4 will assume basic working knowledge of GeoGebra.
These synchronous sessions are 3:30–4:30 p.m. Eastern time and will be hosted online for viewing after the sessions are completed. Session content includes topics explored in more depth during the full-day MLTI professional workshops titled Building Technical Skills with GeoGebra 4 and Exploring Data using Applications on the MLTI Image, although participants of these sessions are encouraged to attend.

The session will also include using Input Help and accessing online help resources.
Session 2 (Thursday Mar. 28): The GeoGebra Spreadsheet, Spreadsheet Tools, and Statistics Commands
Session 2 will focus on using GeoGebra to support the representation and analysis of data using the spreadsheet view and spreadsheet tools, including the One Variable Analysis Tool and Two Variable Analysis Tool. Additional topics include example applets related to statistics and the use of spreadsheet and statistics commands.
Session 3 (Thursday, May 9): More GeoGebra Features, Tools, and Commands
Session 3 will build on the topics in Session 1 and focus on new features, tools, and commands such as animation, Input Boxes, Buttons, using GeoGebra Script, using LaTex in text objects, and using random numbers, lists, and the Sequence command. Session 3 will also highlight example applets that include these features, tools, and commands.
Session 4 (Thursday, May 30): GeoGebra Applets: Modifying, Authoring, and Hosting Dynamic Worksheets
Session 4 will focus on skills for modifying GeoGebra dynamic worksheets (applets) made by others and using GeoGebra to author and host your own applets. Topics will include opening applets from HTML pages in GeoGebra and analyzing and modifying their construction, basic considerations for authoring applets and combining features and commands, and options for exporting and hosting your applets online.
