Presented by: Neil Butler
The workshop will introduce participants to the free mathematical software “GeoGebra”. Participants will be introduced to some basic tools and concepts which will enable them to create looping geometric animations, export them and share them online. Mathematical concepts introduced will include: Trigonometry; coordinate geometry; and sequences & series. No prior knowledge of mathematics or Geogebra is required. The workshop will use “GeoGebra Classic 5” which is available to download in advance, for free, here: https://www.geogebra.org/download
