Using Dynamic Geometry

This video resource from Teachers TV demonstrates how using dynamic geometry software can transform the teaching of mathematical concepts by encouraging discussion and mathematical thinking. In the first session, a class of Year Eight students explore how and why regular hexagons tessellate before investigating why some other polygons do not. The second session shows a Year Nine class using a grid of seven interlinked circles to explore and define the essential properties of 2D shapes. Once they have constructed a shape, they have to justify their conjectures to others.
