Learning Intentions:
  • communicate mathematical thinking coherently and clearly to peers, teachers, and others (NCTM, 2000)
  • technology operations and concepts: students select and use applications effectively and productively (NETS #6)

Success Criteria:
  • have fun learning
  • participate in informing program activities and evaluation by completing the pre-survey (3 min.) and pre-assessment (10 min.)
  • gain skills using GeoGebra for animation and communication (use application effectively)
  • create and share a GeoGebra file with animation and explanation (communicate thinking)
