12.30 – 1.15  Lunch  Lunch
Contributing to a problem bank for resource creation (difficult problems/ theorems) 
Teachers identify from their textbooks a difficult problem/ theorem  Identification of the possible difficult spots in geometry teaching (concepts/ theorems) 
1.15 – 2.30  Technology for creating and learning  Using text editor (bilingual) for creating mathematics resources  Learn Libre Office  Participants are able to develop sample mathematics resources using LO 
2.30 – 4.00  Developing a lesson using Geogebra and accessing resources from the web  1. Participants pick a Geogebra file from a pool
2. Develop a transaction plan for the file (in pairs) 3. Share the lessons in a plenary 
Background note on developing lessons using Geogebra  Development of a lesson plan that can integrate Geogebra, hands on activities, other web based resources 
Homework reading  Angles in a quadrilateral  
Day 2  
9.30 – 11.00  Geogebra for problem solving  Sharing reflections from the homework reading
Exploring the use of Geogebra for illustrating/ solving a problem

Appreciating the role of technology to support TPD 
11.00 – 12.30  Demonstration of exemplar resources  Sharing KOER pages on:
Euclid’s axioms, postulates and theorem 
KOER pages – online and offline  1. Particiants explore an exemplar resource to understand how lessons can be done using Geogebra and through combining other resources
2. Participants will have access to resources created before and during the workshop 
12.30 – 1.15  Lunch  Draw of lots to determine community participation  Participants must take turns to share resources, experiences, ideas related to education  
1.15 – 2.00  Conceptual learning with Geogebra  1. Using Geogebra to solve/ illustrate the questions from the contributed problem bank
Identifying the key ideas/ conceptual difficulties/ misconceptions in the problem. 2. Using Geogebra to build an interactive lesson that builds conceptual thinking and problem solving skills in students
