Embedding: GeoGebra Apps in a Web Page: Quick Start


The powerful ability to interact directly with a GeoGebra applet embedded within a web page opens the door to many exciting opportunities for teaching and learning. Teachers in particular can take advantage of the ability to write to the applet and read from it to develop interactive tasks for their students for both assessment and exploration of key topics in mathematics.

Here we consider an applet that I wrote some years ago to serve as the basis of an algebraic modelling activity for senior students. We see it developed step by step, from simply posing questions and leaving students free to use the applet to explore their solutions with the aid of technology, to step-by-step items, which can readily serve as either formative or summative assessment. We even see how student responses can be sent directly from the page to the teacher or other students.

Meeting a Friend is a great example of algebraic modelling using dynamic geometry and computer algebra. This first model provides the user with a simple point dragging activity from which they can investigate relationships that have concrete and practical applications.
