Section 3 – Functions

In this section you will explore GeoGebra files which:

  • support students understanding the basic characteristics of different function families
  • help students understand shifting and scaling of functions (functions parameters)
  • support students in sketching functions using a number of critical points
  • provide students with a graphical understanding of calculus

Section 4 – Probability and Statistics

In this section you will explore GeoGebra files which:

  • support students’ basic understanding of probability and chance
  • help students understand correlation
  • support students in understanding a 95% confidence interval
  • simulate sampling so that students might understand the distribution of sample means

Section 5 – Complex Numbers

In this section you will explore GeoGebra files which:

  • demonstrate the connection between complex addition and translations
  • demonstrate the connection between complex multiplication and rotation and scaling
  • explain the relationships which exist between two complex numbers and their product
  • form the basis for understanding De Moivre’s Theorem
  • explain why multiplying a complex number by its conjugate creates a real number
