1. Using Geogebra to accurately construct and label geometric figures
2. Visualizing how quadrilaterals are formed
3. Understanding properties of quadrilaterals

### What prior skills are assumed

1. High level of familiarity with the Geogebra tool bar and the different features
2. Working with text document and adding pictures

### What resources do you need

1. Working computer lab with projector
2. Computers installed with Ubuntu Operating System
3. Handout for Ubuntu
4. Handout for Geogebra
5. Handout for Screenshot
6. Geogebra files for demonstration

### What digital skills will you learn

1. Learning to work with interactive applications, with given input
2. Creating, saving files with Geogebra
3. Accurately drawing and measuring geometry figures
4. Inserting pictures and completing the worksheet

### Description of activity with detailed steps

#### Teacher led activity

We will continue the work you did with Geogebra last year to learn more mathematics. Your teacher will display the file below and ask you to explore how quarilaterals can be constructed.

You will use the following Geogebra file for this lesson. (You can click on the image to download the Geogebra file, you can do this for any Geogebra file in the text book)

Your teacher will demonstrate the following to you:

1. Drawing segments after plotting points
2. Measuring and labeling segments
3. Identifying and measuring angles
4. Using the rounding off option
5. Marking a quadrilateral
6. Verifying angle sum property
7. Making a textbox with a conclusion
8. Demonstrating the use of an input box like a check box

#### Student activities

Click here to download the Quadrilateral worksheet and here to download the triangle worksheet. After the demonstration lesson, you will learn to construct the following:

1. Four intersecting lines with the formation of a quadrilateral - try it with all equal sides, two sides equal, etc. Did you notice any difficulty in construction?
2. Exploring the properties of a quadrilateral and completing a worksheet

### Portfolio

1. Your completed Geogebra files will be the addition to your digital portfolio.
2. Completed worksheet
