Fully Digital with GeoGebra
Illustrative Math Curriculum can be printed out and used, however GeoGebra has partnered with IM to make the curriculum fully digital. Students can work on communicating mathematically even when remote. Check out this grade 6 lesson and practice to help students explore the concept of Area, Surface Area, and Volume.
Create Live Sessions
GeoGebra Classroom creates a live session lesson that allows you to see students working in real time. Click “Create Class” on your activity and this provides you with a code (or share the link created) for students to join your live lesson. A tile is added for each student who has joined. The IM curriculum has multiple rich tasks embedded in each activity. Starting a live session class allows you and the students to work through these together. The student tile on the overview page shows you which task each student is working on along with a thumbnail of their work.
Click on the tasks on the side to view a tile of each students work on the task. Click on a student tile to enlarge and view. Student names can be hidden to allow for in class discussion or remote video class discussions.
Assign to Google Classroom
How do you assign math work digitally? GeoGebra is an easy answer. Open an activity in GeoGebra, including the Illustrative Mathematics activities and use the 3 dots in the upper corner to “Share.” After connecting your Google Classroom to GeoGebra you can post directly to an assignment. Students can work on the activity independently. You are able to access their work through Google Classroom.
