Sir Michael Atiyah

‘Algebra is concerned with manipulation in time, and geometry is concerned with space. These are two orthogonal, aspects of the world, and they represent two different points of view in mathematics.’

What is GeoGebra?

Dynamic Mathematics Software

For Learning and Teaching Mathematics

- Explore/Discuss the navigation structures

• Make a dynamic figure:- If you are adventurous you may choose to make a

quadrilateral- If you want to work with Roland, we are going to

make dynamic parallel lines
