Here we start collecting and listing ideas for motivating activities e.g. for lessons in which another teacher has to be replaced or for afternoon clubs or .... These materials can be used beyound the curriculum and beyond topics that are taught actually in maths, art, technology, computer science or other subjects.
The following examples are related to seasons or actual dates and events. Most of these ideas have been just tried out by partners in this project.
We would like to encourage all to find from time to time an extra hour to do some motivating stuff with GeoGebra - perhaps at home, too.
Activities that had been just realised (in the light of recent events):
- Model, simulation of real life -> see pages with a lot of ideas (DE, CZ, FR, LV, RO, SP, Canary Islands)
- Collection of leaves of tree with the use of Bezier tool
construction by Fynn (GER)
- Caleidoscopes (GER)
- Essay Maths through Arts (RO&GER) - Work presented at the International Contest "Symbols in the Universe of Knowledge" - May 2018, appreciated with Honorable Mention.
- Model of a fidget spinner - see the video from Nanna Filt Christensen
- perspective drawing by hand in art lessons can inspire to do the same in math lessons
- Classroom decoration with pictures and rotation - see idea from Jenny Silverman
- Old mechanical linkages - see ideas by google search
- Inspirational are the videos: "Doodling in Math: Spirals, Fibonacci, and Being a Plant "- Part 1 of 3- Part 2 of 3- Part 3 of 3- by Vi Hart:Part 1 of 3, Part 2 of 3,Part 3 of 3
- Constructing ancient symbols or elements of decorationMay-be a trip to one of these countries can be a reason for having an extra-hour with GeoGebra. The links lead to examples foun by google search. E.g.
We will think about using GeoGebra 3D (or Desmos) and its impact to math, art, technology - next schoolyear.
