Др Жолт Лавица са Универзитета у Кембриџу одржаће предавање на Математичком факултету 12. априла 2013 са почетком у 16 h (сала ће бити накнадно објављена).

Наслов предавања: "Enhancing mathematics teaching and learning through a community-developed software: GeoGebra"

Садржај:

GeoGebra (http://geogebra.org), a free, open-source, dynamic mathematics software, is rapidly gaining popularity in the teaching and learning of mathematics around the world. Currently, GeoGebra is used by approximately 20 million students and teachers, translated to 62 languages, used in 190 countries, and downloaded by approximately 500,000 users in each month,and clearly making an impact on mathematics education in most countries. This increased use compelled the establishment of the International GeoGebra Institute (IGI) that serves as a virtual organization to support local GeoGebra initiatives and institutes. There are already 143 institutes in 85 countries, which pursue training and support of teachers, develop teaching materials, and carry out research projects. In my talk, I will review examples of applications of GeoGebra at different levels of education from around the world. The capabilities of GeoGebra are now extended to other subject areas such as physics, chemistry, engineering etc. and will show some examples of development in these areas. In addition, I will outline our plans to work together with different countries to enhance mathematics and STEM (Science, Technolgy, Engineering, Mathematics) in their educational systems.

Кратка биографија предавача:

Dr Zsolt Lavicza, Faculty of Education, University of Cambridge

After receiving his degrees in mathematics and physics in Hungary, Zsolt began his postgraduate studies in applied mathematics. While teaching several mathematics courses at the University of Cincinnati he became interested in researching issues in the teaching and learning mathematics. In particular, he focused on investigating issues in relation to the use of technology in undergraduate mathematics education. Since then both at the University of Michigan and Cambridge, he has worked on several research projects examining technology and mathematics teaching in a variety of classroom environments. Currently, Zsolt is working as an Associate Lecturer in Mathematics Education at the University of Cambridge as well as he is coordinating the development of local GeoGebra Institutes and offering research support within the International GeoGebra Institute.
