I wanted to share some information with you about the Geometer’s Sketchpad In-service. Jeremy Wojcicki did an excellent job presenting the material. He had several packets of different applications that could be easily implemented into our classrooms. The software is hands-on and easy to navigate. It is also easy to use with Smartboard technology. I see that this will make our constructions more understandable to students. I also believe it will help have more accurate drawings to use within our notes. Jeremy has also offered to assist us throughout the next school year as we implement the technology. I am not always the most techie in the department, but I found the software easy to use and very valuable. I appreciate that K-12 found this an important supplement to purchase. It will certainly be used to help develop the student’s understanding of geometric concepts. A visual picture is an excellent way to develop students understanding of abstract concepts. I would also like to thank Gail personally from our group for supporting our math department. It means a lot that she continues to support our efforts to produce the best students in Arizona.
