Tech in the MHS Math Dept.

This is the tenth in a series of blog “snapshots” of how Mercy students benefit from using iPad technology (and other tools) throughout the school day.

In the photos below, students in Geometry Honors are using GeoGebra to investigate the relationship between angles formed by parallel lines and a transversal. They will use the results to develop conjectures about the congruent or supplementary angle pairs.  The final component of the activity is to write the formal proof for each conjecture, thus developing the theorems found in geometry textbooks.  — Carol Baron
