Students love discovery exercises. With Geogebra
, the user can move and change objects with the click of a mouse. In this exercise, when you move any point, a new circle is formed. This allows the student to create several unique circles of their choosing. Geogebra
, then, automatically updates and displays all the new measurements.Through a step by step discovery process worksheet, students uncover the details/ideas behind both the equation to determine arc length and the equation to determine sector area. This allows them to clearly see their derivations and thus better understand their applications. The graphics in Geogebra
are visually appealing and the lines in the circle are color coded to help students identify each of the measurements required. All very helpful to fully understand and to apply the concepts learned.
, a free program, is quickly and easily downloaded from the internet to both computers and tablets (as an app). Students can work individually in a computer lab or you can use a single computer and projector and work through the exercise as a group. Alternatively, you could use the flipped classroom model and have them complete the exercise at home allowing class time to further develop the ideas presented.
Four pdf pages of guided exercises, questions and calculations along with one Geogebra
file will provide your students with a complete resource to fully and independently explore this topic.
