Geogebra as a vehicle for STEM

Adrian Oldknow

Professor Emeritus, University of Chichester, UK

Research Fellow, University of Amsterdam, Netherlands




Many countries now recognise the need to encourage more students to pursue careers involving Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM/MST) – and hence to engage their interest while at school.  One current UK example is the education programme around the Bloodhound Super-Sonic Car, due to attempt a new world land speed record of over 1000 mph (1600 kph) in Spring 2013: http://www.bloodhoundssc.com/.  I will give examples of how various features of the latest version of Geogebra can be used to support STEM activities and to stimulate students and teachers.  These include:

  • analysis of data captured from video clips of objects in motion
  • data captured from experiments using a variety of sensors
  • mathematical modelling of dynamic processes
  • geometry and algebra used to model aspects of photographs

Educational implications for pedagogy and curriculum design will also be considered.
