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.’

Explore Geogebra• Open a new window, by clicking on the program

- 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
