Description
A series of applets will be developed and implemented in a geometry course for future elementary educators both online and in person using an open source cross platform tool. The applets will implement dynamic geometry worksheets that will allow for instructor demonstration as well as independent student exploration. Students will be provided with instructions to engage with the applets to enhance their understanding of dynamic relationships between geometric objects. As students engage with the content in this innovative way, the focus will be transferred from memorization of rules and properties to true understanding of geometric relationships.
