MCTM 11 I have never used this and it was fun.  I am going to try this with my stude

Introduction to GeoGebra, Reflection Document

Workshop materials at http://bit.ly/MCTM11GGB

1)  What do you think of GeoGebra?  I think its a wonderful  FREE alternative to other dynamical geometry program.

• I can’t wait to share this program with my colleagues. ...so cool!
• Wonderful--very intuitive and instructional
• I like the program -- I will have to practice a lot to make it do what I want it to do.
• I can think of so many uses for this program.  It is a good demonstration tool for lower education math classes.
• I think this is great! No need to lots of equipt. and/or softwear
• This is an awesome medium to share and explare geometry and algebra
• I am so glad there is a free alternative to Geometer’s Sketchpad!
• I’m a newbie, but hope to find some neat things to share with my
•  students.
• I really enjoyed this FREE dynamic program. . It seems very easy to do with my kids. Yeah!!

2) How might you use this with your students?For homework assignments.

•  teach 3rd grade, so I would use it to model a lot of the concepts that I want my 3rd graders to understand.  The movement aspect of it helps them to see small differences.
• To teach geometry and algebra
• for classroom lessons. it will keep students engaged so much more than my marker and whiteboard.
• As others have said, students will be able to
• Looking to use this with slope and equations with struggling learners
• This should be good for all levels of students to explore on as well as remediate.

3)  What questions do you have about the program or its use?

• I can definitely figure stuff out by playing around with it.
• Need more practice
• I’ll get it figured out just by playing around with it.
• I need some free tutorials and lesson plans.
• Need more help and practice.  “GeoGebra for dummies”?

4)  What’s next for you with respect to GeoGebra?

• Practice
• Yes, practice
• ditto

5) How might you improve this workshop?

• having time to explore was awesome.  More presenters should present this way
• I liked that you gave us time to explore
• none
• Perfect
• It was great to have a time to figure, yes, with your assistance available if needed.

• I am looking forward to sharing this with colleagues and students. This was the first time I have used this...and I really enjoyed it!
• Awesome tool to use with students!  Can’t wait to get into the classroom to use it!
• WOW!  Loved this session.  Thank you!  Very useful :)
• I thoroughly enjoyed today’s session.  I learned so much on GeoGebra.  I cannot wait to use it with my students.  I especially like that now making tests & quizzes for Geometry will be easier by constructing in GeoGebra and then snipping.
• I really enjoyed being able to make the geometric shapes and then look at related data and graphics.  I’ll be glad to see the program for the elementary grades and look forward to implementing it with the students I educate.
