Workshop highlights

The ITfC team taught the teachers, the following topics:

  1. demonstration of Basic Proportionality theorem (class X theorem), using Geogebra
    1. explaining how using Geogebra makes teaching this theorem more effective and easier
    2. all teachers practised the Basic Proportionality theorem construction, on their computer in the VTC Lab.
  2. Learning basic constructions using Geogebra – point, segment, line, ray, angles, triangles, square
  3. Exploring lessons using Geogebra such as angles formed by parallel lines and transversal
  4. Creating a slider to develop animated lessons in geometry

ITfC team also asked teachers to -

  1. install Geogebra in their personal computers and school computers and practice using Geogebra
  2. discuss with their HMs about conducting Maths class with Geogebra for select topics for making student learning more effective and easier

ITfC team can visit interested schools to-

  1. install Geogebra in school computers and teacher laptops
  2. support teacher to teach one lesson using Geogebra (lesson identified by teacher)
  3. support teachers by providing them Geogebra lessons/ resources for class 8 and 9 topics to use for teaching their students
