Modelling geometry - Geogebra

Tool Description Geogebra(tool) is a tool for modelling(ta) in geometry(topic). An alluring feature is that you can change parameters on pre-built models using a mouse. You can indeed create models pretty much by drawing on-screen. Remarkably this ‘dynamic geometry’ application, offers the great convenience of running in a browser, but can be downloaded to work offline on a desktop. Impressive and deservedly popular. (edit)

Teaching Approach. Visualisation(ta) tools offer students a way to engage in mathematical thinking(ta) and language(ta) around a shared image. They may also engage in higher order(ta) thinking and questioning(ta) - manipulating the visualisation. (edit)
