Course Description

Requirements: Intermediate computer proficiency

How do your students perform in math? And how much effort do you put into teaching it?

Because of its abstract nature, mathematics can pose challenges at school. As a matter of fact, it can sometimes be hard for teachers to come up with efficient ways to transmit knowledge to their students, who, consequently, often find themselves struggling to visualize and understand certain concepts.

The participants of the course will learn to solve these problems with GeoGebra, an open-source software used for visualizing mathematical concepts, and for dynamic constructions, among others. In addition, they will discover LaTeX, an open-source software that can be used for writing mathematical expressions.

The course structure is carefully planned to help math teachers bring their lessons to a higher level and give their students a better learning experience.

During the course, the participants will progressively discover about all the features of these programs, moving from basic to intermediate, to increasingly more advanced functions.

Moreover, the participants will discover how to find and edit pre-made GeoGebra applets, and how to design digital materials, such as digital books.

They will also find out how to create “infinite” workbook tasks and other attractive learning activities. Finally, they will learn to maximize the potential of ICT in the classroom and identify its drawbacks.

By the end of the course, you will feel comfortable using GeoGebra to enrich your math lessons with elaborate digital materials, activities, and assessments.

As a result, you will approach your duties in a relaxed manner, and your students will be able to clearly see their progress!

Please note: participants are required to bring their laptops and mouse. Without the latter, using the software can be extremely time-consuming.

Course category: ICT

ICT: Today’s teachers have to be familiar with new technologies and digital media not only to understand their students’ world but also to update their way of teaching according to the new needs of their students. Thanks to our courses on Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) you will learn how to manage a classroom online or remotely, by exploring the most relevant ICT tools for teaching. You will be able to use various forms of digital content, such as audio platforms, videos, and social media, to communicate with your students.
