Visualisation  ORBIT/GeoGebra Competion 2013  
The 2013 competition has generated five high quality openended activities that support interactive teaching and allow children (age 610) to explore an element of mathematics for themselves. The following guidance note are provided for each resource:
 
Visualisation  Kepler's Third Law  
Using 'real life' data This lesson features a ‘real life’ example for students to explore GeoGebra. The focus on ‘real life’ increases student motivation.
The activity engages pupils in group talk(i), mathematical thinking(i) and vocabulary(i). This open ended(i) task encourages higher order(i) thinking, and encourages whole class(i) discussion(i)/questioning(i) and inquiry(i) projects.  
Visualisation  Variety of perimeter with fixed area  
Interactive GeoGebra investigation that allows children (age 610) to explore an element of mathematics for themselves.
 
Visualisation  Flying paper planes  
Very visual and interactive and simple to understand This lesson features a ‘real life’ example for students to explore using visualisation^{(ta)} via GeoGebra. The focus on ‘real life’ increases student motivation.
The activity engages pupils in group talk^{(ta)}, mathematical thinking^{(ta)} and vocabulary^{(ta)}. This open ended^{(ta)} task encourages higher order^{(ta)} thinking, and encourages whole class^{(ta)} discussion^{(ta)}/questioning^{(ta)} and inquiry^{(ta)} projects.  
Visualisation  Using visualisation in maths teaching  
Thinking about visualisation in education. This unit looks at visualisation^{(ta)} as it relates to mathematics, focusing upon how it can be used to improve learning. It also identifies ways in which to make more use of visualisation within the classroom.
 
Visualisation  Solar and Lunar Eclipse  
To show and explain how a Solar and Lunar eclipse occurs This lesson features a ‘real life’ example for students to explore using visualisation^{(ta)} via GeoGebra. The focus on ‘real life’ increases student motivation.
The activity engages pupils in group talk^{(ta)}, mathematical thinking^{(ta)} and vocabulary^{(ta)}. This open ended^{(ta)} task encourages higher order^{(ta)} thinking, and encourages whole class^{(ta)} discussion^{(ta)}/questioning^{(ta)} and inquiry^{(ta)} projects.  
Visualisation  Positioning fractions on the number line.  
Interactive GeoGebra investigation that allows children (age 610) to explore an element of mathematics for themselves.
 
Visualisation  Circumference of a Circle.  
Interactive GeoGebra investigation that allows students to explore an element of mathematics for themselves.
 
Visualisation  Variety of areas with fixed perimeter.  
Interactive GeoGebra investigation that allows children (age 610) to explore an element of mathematics for themselves.
 
Visualisation  Perimeter of a rectangle.  
Interactive GeoGebra investigation that allows children (age 610) to explore an element of mathematics for themselves.
 
Visualisation  GeoGebra STEM Exploration  
Develop 'real world' GeoGebra mathematical modelling applications which reach out to a wide range of users both students and teachers The halfterm activity consists of 3 halfday workshops interspersed with homeworking and online collaboration. Each workshop is part tutorial and help in GeoGebra, part development, presentation and feedback on their emerging work. The three halfday sessions become gradually less structured as students become more confident taking the initiative in developing their own work:
An initial GeoGebra tutorial session features ‘real life’ examples such as mathematical modelling^{(ta)} and visualisation^{(ta)} from photographs of patterns and structure in flowers and architecture; exercises such as “math aerobics” where students model algebraic functions kinaesthetically; and data analysis and exploration such as from astronomy (Kepler's 3rd law) and athletic performance (Usain Bolt’s 100m sprints). Realistic examples such as these, or from students’ previous work, are essential to get the ball rolling. Following this, the onus is very much on the student’s own initiative. The focus on ‘real life’ and student ownership of ideas and project development increases student motivation. The activity engages pupils in group talk^{(ta)}, mathematical thinking^{(ta)} and vocabulary^{(ta)}. This open ended^{(ta)} task develops higher order^{(ta)} reasoning^{(ta)}, and encourages whole class^{(ta)} discussion^{(ta)}/questioning^{(ta)} and inquiry^{(ta)} projects.  
Visualisation  Radioactive Decay and Carbon Dating  
Using 'real life' data to explore exponential graphs This lesson features a ‘real life’ example for students to explore using visualisation^{(ta)} via GeoGebra. The focus on ‘real life’ increases student motivation.
The activity engages pupils in group talk^{(ta)}, mathematical thinking^{(ta)} and vocabulary^{(ta)}. This open ended^{(ta)} task encourages higher order^{(ta)} thinking, and encourages whole class^{(ta)} discussion^{(ta)}/questioning^{(ta)} and inquiry^{(ta)} projects.  
Visualisation  Number and representation game.  
Interactive GeoGebra investigation that allows children (age 610) to explore an element of mathematics for themselves.
