Introduction

The aim of the Florida GeoGebra, 2019 Conference is to serve as a forum for teachers, researchers, and innovators to exchange ideas and present pedagogical and mathematical examples of best classroom practices using GeoGebra.  The Florida GeoGebra Conference will be held Friday, February 15, 2019, at Pompano Beach Senior High School located in Pompano Beach, Florida and on Saturday, February 16, 2019, at Florida Atlantic University located in Boca Raton, Florida.

GeoGebra, 2019 conference participants will learn the latest innovations and uses of GeoGebra in active student-centered, discovery-based learning.  Teachers will learn about the latest web-based GeoGebra educational materials.  Finally, teachers will create active student-centered, discovery-based lessons using GeoGebra resources for the classroom.  All teachers attending Florida GeoGebra, 2019 will receive a "Certificate of Participation"  after the conference.  

What is GeoGebra?

GeoGebra is an Open Source and Free software for learning and teaching mathematics used at all levels of education from early school grades to colleges and beyond. GeoGebra won many software awards and is used around the globe (more at www.geogebra.org). GeoGebra serves as a tool for researchers and educators to introduce innovation in the teaching both at school and university level.

Who should attend?

  • Middle school and high school science and mathematics teachers
  • College and university professors of mathematics
  • Science and math education and technology specialists

Dr. Markus Hohenwarter
Professor of Mathematics and Director of the Institute for Didactics of Mathematics,
Linz, Austria                                                                                                                                                                             

Markus Hohenwarter is an Austrian mathematician and professor at the Johannes Kepler University.  He is the director of the Institute for Didactics of Mathematics.  As part of his university education (Applied Computer Science and Mathematics Teaching) he developed the mathematical teaching software GeoGebra, which has been awarded numerous software awards in Europe and the United States (Tech Award). Hohenwarter taught at a grammar school and worked in numerous teacher training projects in Austria, England and the USA. After his dissertation at the University of Salzburg (2006), he worked at Florida Atlantic University and Florida State University . On 1 February 2010 he became a university professor at the Institute for Didactics of Mathematics at the JKU Linz.  His research focus is the use of technology in mathematics education.  

GeoGebra Apps Replacing Calculators and Leading Innovation

The suite of GeoGebra Apps has grown quite a bit and now includes our scientific calculator, graphing calculator, CAS calculator, and geometry tool which are starting to replace traditional calculators world-wide even in exams. Furthermore, I will show our brand new GeoGebra Notes app for interactive whiteboards as well as our innovative Augmented Reality apps allowing to put abstract 3D objects into the real world.

GeoGebra Classroom Resources and Sharing Platform

In this presentation, I will discuss the newly structured GeoGebra classroom resources platform including topic pages and elements of a social network for mathematics teachers with only one goal: to make it easier to find great free resources for learning and teaching among more than 1 million interactive activities and books on the GeoGebra website.
