What to Bring

If you can bring a laptop, please do.  If you cannot, please let me know.

For much of the work, we will be using GeoGebra, a free interactive math program. Download it here.

I know from years of experience that interactive geometry software is a huge help in doing this work. It makes many otherwise very challenging ideas vastly more accessible to students, and even to teachers.

Please download GeoGebra before the workshop, so we can spend our time together doing math and discussing pedagogy, not installing software. And if you can spend a little time familiarizing yourself with it, all the better. Please do not leave this to the last minute. I will not be able to take workshop time to help you.

Even if you need to use tablets at school, I strongly recommend you bring a laptopas GeoGebra on a computer has more features, and is easier to use. Moreover, I am more familiar with it, and will be better able to help you. It will not be difficult to transfer what you know to a tablet when you get back to your school. Likewise, I recommend you work along with us with GeoGebra, even if you wish to transfer the activities to Geometer's Sketchpad, Cabri, or some other interactive geometry application when you get back home.

If you encounter difficulties, e-mail me and I'll try to help.
