Dicovering Pythagoras

Dicovering Pythagoras

An interactive geogebra applet that allows the teacher (or students on ipads/in computer room if uploaded onto geogebra website) to create right angle triangles using a set number of standard squares. Students can record their trials and try to spot any relationships between the size of the squares that work. An accompanying worksheet and lesson plan to match. You need geogebra installed (free) or use the web applet that does not require geogebra to be installed.

Area and prism generator

Area and prism generator

An interactive geogebra applet that generates most shapes of interest including… ==>triangles ==>squares ==>rectangles ==>parallelograms ==>trapeziums ==>regular…pentagons,hexagons,heptagons,octagons,nonagons,decagons ==>circles …at the press of a button (use the slider to change shape). Good for use with an interactive whiteboard to practice finding the area. This can then be converted into a prism using the ‘add layer’ button so that students can form the links betweeen area and volume. Keep adding layers to generate the prism or use the ‘generate prism’ button to generate a random depth prism. Each layer can be dragged away from the prism to justify mutliplying by the depth. You either need geogebra installed on your machine or use the web link to use the resource within a web browser without the need to install geogebra.

Interactive trigonometry question generator and solver

Interactive trigonometry question generator and solver

An interactive geogebra applet that generates right-angled trigonometry questions. Good for use on an interactive whitebaord or projector. You can generate random ‘missing length’ examples or ‘missing angle’ examples at a press of a button as well as specific sin/cos/tan length or angle questions. You can hide/reveal the multiplier in each questions as well as the answer. Please ensure you have geogebra installed on your machine or use the web link to show the applet in a web browser without the need of installing geogebra.

Investigating Circumference and Diameter (Discovering Pi)

Investigating Circumference and Diameter (Discovering Pi)

An interactive geogebra applet that enables students to investigate the relationship between the diameter and circumference by measuring the diameter (drag the blue cross), unrolling the circle and measuring the circumference (drag the red cross). Students can zoom in to inprove the estimation of pi. Please note, you need to install geogebra (or upload onto geogebra site for use without install).
