I feel that GeoGebra is an excellent tool for enhancing student learning in the mathematics classroom. However, one of the struggles I have found with using GeoGebra effectively in my upper level math courses (Grade 9 and up) is that students simply do not know the basics of the software and they get frustrated quite quickly. For this reason I have been trying to provide my students with simple activities that require the use of the basic features of GeoGebra so that they can comfortably build up their skillset. In this post I will briefly share one activity that I have used with my 6th graders to review polygons and create some tessellations.
