Yesterday I spent the day at a maths teachers conference at the University of Birmingham. There were two lectures on applications of maths. These were basically trying to get us to encourage our students to study maths (at Birmingham) by showing us the cutting edge of maths. All very interesting (there was some fascinating stuff) but there was nothing I could really use in the classroom.

The best bit of the day was experimenting with a free piece of software called Geogebra This session was a basic introduction to this software which from a mathematical point of view is AMAZING. I will probably blog more about this in the future but here are some of the sketches I have made. I have used Geogebra quite a lot so found this session a bit basic - but it was great to pick up a few new tips.
