**Using GeoGebra to Create Online Interactive Explorations**

GeoGebra, since it is written in Java, integrates well with the Web. The software has tools for creating a **Dynamic Worksheet as Webpage** or for copying the code for applets that may be embedded in wiki pages or in pages within Learning Management Systems (LMS) such as Desire to Learn (D2L) or Moodle. With these tools you can create mathematical objects with which your students can interact.

Click here for an example of a Dynamic Worksheet: **Score_a_Basket.html **that could be used in the** Ontario Grade 10 Academic course.**

Click **Modelling Gas Prices** for an example of an applet and instructions embedded in a wiki page.

Click here for a second example, a **Triangle Classification Game** that could be used in the Geometry and Spatial Sense strand of Grade 5.

Teachers across the globe are contributing to a pool of these online GeoGebra resources at **GeoGebra Tube**

Explore **Area of Parallelograms**, **Patron du Cube** or **Happy Halloween**

**Creating a Dynamic Worksheet** in a basic form or **Embedding GeoGebra Applets** is quite simple.

**Using GeoGebra to Display and Share Student Work**

The simple production of webpages displaying GeoGebra products provides students with a tool to display and share their mathematical work. Steve Phelps, a teacher at Madeira High School (Cincinnati, OH), has set up a wiki (http://madeiramath2.wikispaces.com/) where his students in the Honours Geometry course post their solutions to problems. Many of these involve the use of GeoGebra.

Go to: **http://madeiramath2.wikispaces.com/ **

See the work posted by **Abby J** and **Andrea W**

Go to: **http://madeiramath2.wikispaces.com/3D ** to see a screen cast by **Amy S** showing work in 3 D geometry using the beta version of GeoGebra 5.0 (http://www.geogebra.org/webstart/5.0/geogebra-50.jnlp).

**Using GeoGebra to Support Collaborative Exploration and Problem Solving**

By combining a wiki (PBworks) with GeoGebra we can set up an online environment for students to work collaboratively on mathematics problems.

For an example of this go to: **http://collabmath.pbworks.com/**

Go to** Collaborate **and contribute to the development of a solution to the problem posted there.** **

The instructions for the activities above are also available as a PDF document.
