The GeoGebra Graphing Calculator app is available on smartphones, tablets or via a browser. MEI is currently producing a set of resources and a practice test that utilise the functionality of this app to help students in their understanding of maths. These resources are based on the content of the first year of A level Mathematics (i.e. AS Pure) and are designed to be used once students have finished studying this content.

The resources will consist of:
The test is designed to be administered using GeoGebra's "exam mode". This feature allows for the device to be securely locked-down so that it cannot be used to communicate during the exam. MEI wishes to collect some data from schools and colleges about how using this exam mode works in practice. Schools/colleges signing-up to receive these resources will be expected to complete a short survey about their experiences after they have used the test.
Teachers can express an interest in being involved in this project by emailing Tom Button, including the name of your school/college. Further details about the trial and the full expectations will be sent to teachers that are interested.
