# End of term…

For those in school for another week, some end of term activities…

There are numerous suggestions on this page, End of term activities and have a look at these brilliant GeoGebra puzzles from Daniel Mentrard.

# Autograph – Web Version

From The Complete Mathematics Conference, I really enjoyed Maths Conference #26, July 2021. The highlight for me (apart from very much enjoying my own session presenting with AQA on the New GCSE Maths tests from Exampro which been developed for the two-year AQA key stage 4 scheme of work) had to be the first session of the day I attended – a first look at the web version of Autograph.

I have also added this information to a new page in the Autograph section of my Use of Technology series.

A web version for Autograph is now available, a game-changer for this sophisticated object-based dynamic geometry system. It has a great deal of functionality already and will be developed even further. I am so pleased to have the option now of sharing pages easily with students. The interface is intuitive. Select the various options to see all the functionality available. Add some points or an equation and experiment! I really like all the style options in Autograph making it possible to create attractive resources. And look at all those colours! That certainly appeals to me with my interest in using colour in Mathematics to add clarity to explanations. Note the colours of the points I have used in my reflection example below. This is just my own first look, I will be learning much more.

I find Autograph very intuitive for illustrating transformations. It is very simple to enter a shape and transform it. The shape can be user-defined so it is very easy to set up illustrations. It is also very simple to add labels. With Autograph when you select objects you get a menu of appropriate choices; selecting an object and equation offers the option to reflect. I thought I would create a page to show reflection in x=a:

Select the image or this link to see the above page. Select the workspace if nothing appears and try changing the variable a by tapping along the line.

It is possible to embed a page as well as share it…
