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.
