The Intergeo project's purpose is that all European schools can use easy and effectively Dynamic Geometry Systems (DGS) in their teaching. DGS are programs that let a student control a geometric construction with just a mouse. DGS almost transform learning mathematics into a game. In addition, they are excellent tools to introduce young students into using computers. The Intergeo project goal is to provide access to high quality educative resources.
Intergeo is already improving classroom implementation of Dynamic Geometry by:
- Constructing a website, i2geo.net, where teaching materials and whole courses can be shared and downloaded.
- Providing search tools to find quickly the most appropriate educative resources.
- Making all DGS compatible, so that any DGS, such as WIRIS cas, will be able to use resources created with another DGS.
Intergeo has brought together the most important European companies and university groups related to Dynamic Geometry Systems, such as Cabri, Cinderella, GeoGebra, and WIRIS cas. Dissemination of the results and teacher awareness are key parts of the project..
Intergeo Project is co-funded by the Community programme eContentplus.
