Session Title: GeoGebra: Dynamic Mathematics for Teaching and Research

Session Presenters: Dragana Martinovic (University of Windsor), Zekeriya Karadag (OISE, University of Toronto), Daniel Jarvis (Nipissing University), and Oana Radu (Memorial University)

Session Description: This presentation will offer background information on GeoGebra, highlighting it as a dynamic learning environment that brings visual, algebraic, and numeric (as in the spreadsheet view) representations together. Mathematics education methods courses offered in the pre-service programs emphasize proficient use of technology for effective mathematics education. The appeal of GeoGebra is that it is open access software, suitable for use in schools as well as at home. In this section of the presentation, experiences from introducing GeoGebra to the Intermediate/Senior pre-service teachers will be described in addition to some research done around GeoGebra. The audience will be introduced to the GeoGebra International Institute and GeoGebra Institute of Canada.

Session Title: First Canadian GeoGebra Competition

Session Presenters: Douglas McDougall (University of Toronto) and Zekeriya Karadag (University of Toronto)

Session Description: For the upcoming year, we, as members of the Organizing Committee of the GeoGebra Institute of Canada (GI-Canada), are planning the Institute’s outreach activities. One such activity which will promote GeoGebra and the idea of open access is a national competition regarding the creative use of the GeoGebra software. This First Canadian GeoGebra Competition will be announced at the GI-Canada inauguration at the Canadian Mathematics Society (CMS) 2009 Winter Meeting to be held at the University of Windsor, Ontario. We are in the process of developing the competition criteria, rubrics, and organisational structure. We consider this competition an excellent opportunity that will not only motivate the participants to become competent users of GeoGebra, but that will also help to enhance their mathematical creativity. However, we would be more than happy to extend this national competition into an international one. In the conference, we would like to seek for opportunities to collaborate with the other GeoGebra Institutes to facilitate and obtain funding for an International GeoGebra Competition.

Session Title: GeoGebra Institute of Canada (GI-Canada)

Session Presenters: Douglas McDougall (University of Toronto) and Zekeriya Karadag (University of Toronto)

Session Description: We, the Canadian GeoGebra team, started preliminary discussions regarding establishing a GeoGebra Institute of Canada (GIC) during the Canadian Mathematics Education Forum (CMEF) in Vancouver (May 2009). After some follow-up email communication, we developed a preliminary action plan during The Third International Symposium on Mathematics and its Connections to the Arts and Sciences (MACAS3) in Moncton (May 2009). Our action plan, in which we discuss our initial thoughts on dynamic online learning environments in general, and GeoGebra in particular, were included in our final report for the CMEF conference. In addition, we organized an ad hoc session at the Canadian Mathematics Education Study Group (CMESG) meeting in Toronto (June 2009). The aforementioned activities and presentations sparked a lot of interest among Canadian mathematics educators and mathematicians. Our discussions also helped us create a group synergy which is important for the task upon which we wish to now embark. By considering the geographical layout of Canada, we propose the GIC as an umbrella institute and resource for future provincial GeoGebra branches. This proposal and related activities will be further discussed in ongoing meetings of the GIC Canada Organizing Committee. Our experience with this national process may indeed be used as a model for similar activities in other countries.

Conference Title: First International GeoGebra Conference

Location: RISC, Castle of Hagenberg near Linz, Austria

Dates: 14-15 July 2009


Conference Title: Canadian Mathematics Education Study Group (CMESG) Annual Meeting

Location: York University, Toronto, ON

Dates: 5-9 June 2009

Session Title: The GeoGebra Institute of Canada

Session Presenters: Zekeriya Karadag (OISE, University of Toronto) and Oana Radu (Memorial University)

Session Description: The goals of this presentation were to raise awareness on the GeoGebra dynamic open source software within the Canadian mathematics education community, to present the benefits of using GeoGebra within universities and high-schools and ultimately to describe a possible structure for the GeoGebra Institute of Canada (GIC). GIC will be part of the IGI, the International GeoGebra Institute, which is a central virtual organization that works together with independent regionally based GeoGebra Institutes. The mission of the GeoGebra Institute is to train and support professional development and support for pre-service and in-service teachers, develop and share resources and classroom materials and extend the dynamic mathematics software GeoGebra, and to conduct and support GeoGebra related research which focuses on the teaching and development activities and to promote the collaboration between IGI and the local GeoGebra Institutes. The presenters used the comments and suggestions of the Canadian mathematics education community to adjust the proposed structure of the GeoGebra Institute of Canada, and ultimately to contribute to the creation of GeoGebra Institute of Canada.


Roulet, G. (2013, Feb 2) Quinte - St Lawrence Mathematics Association (QSLMA) conference

Roulet, G., & Lazarus, J. (2013). Ontario College Mathematics Association (OCMA) Annual Meeting, Sat, Mar 9; Presentation and Workshop

Introduction to GeoGebra (ISOMA 2010: Knowledge Integration)

Dr. Zekeriya Karadag will provide an hands-on workshop (x2) to introduce the basics of GeoGebra, which is a free, online, dynamic, and interactive mathematics learning environment. The participants will have a chance to explore basic features of GeoGebra, to become familiar with the pre-made and ready-use dynamic worksheet resources, to modify pre-made dynamic worksheets, and to create some dynamic worksheets. Please bring your laptops.
