|Teaching Mathematics using Information and Communication Technology|
|Adrian Oldknow and Ron Taylor|
What Information and Communication Technology resources - both hardware and software - are available for maths teachers? How can they be used to extend and enrich students’ learning across the maths curriculum? How can teachers incorporate ICT effectively into their lesson and course planning? Why should maths teachers incorporate ICT into their teaching? What developments are likely in the future? Providing clear and practical answers to questions such as these, covering number, algebra, geometry, trigonometry, statistics, modelling and advanced maths, Teaching Mathematics with ICT the most user-friendly, comprehensive guide to the subject.
“Refreshingly practical and honest… The great boon is the CD provided with the book, which contains the necessary software to allow the reader to replicate what is in the text… Not only does the book fascinate mathematically, it forces reflection on the use of ICT… This is an excellent book and should be a part of the armoury of every teacher of maths.” -- Times Education Supplement

|Using Cabri Geometry II in Key Stage 3|
|Geometry is a dynamic subject, best understood when we discover it for ourselves with a dynamic interactive tool. Cabri Geometry II software is the perfect tool for exploring geometry dynamically. This set of worksheets shows how to use Cabri to explore and understand KS3 school geometry. |
Each worksheet is in two parts: the first part provides systematic instructions to set up a robust screen that will demonstrate particular geometrical properties. The second part is an investigation that will lead to the students discovering the geometrical properties for themselves.
They are designed to be used in a variety of ways.
Many of the activities provide opportunities for students to make the first steps towards developing geometrical proof, in the four-step process of: convince yourself; convince a friend; convince a pen-friend; convince your maths teacher. These activities will help with the crucial first step of students understanding the geometry before starting on a recording process that will eventually lead to a written proof.
