About the Session

As technology becomes more readily available, the ability to represent difficult abstract ideas becomes easier and easier. You will learn how to write complex math equations in google docs with Equatio, create animations (gifs) in geogebra, use interactive graphing software in geogebra, and more. These programs are free, easy to learn, and even simpler to implement in your class the very next day. Please ensure you bring your own laptop and mouse, as time will be given for you to play and create!

This learning opportunity is being offered through a grant from Alberta Education.
