Title: A CODAP workshop—From the basics to secrets

Description: Join CODAP’s project lead for this participatory webinar/workshop in which we’ll start at the beginning with CODAP and progress toward advanced topics at a pace and in directions driven by participants. We’ll think together about ways teachers and students can get started using CODAP and we’ll look at beyond-the-basics moves students often need. Topics will include:

  • Joys of grouping

  • Filtering through hiding and setting aside

  • What good are sliders?

  • Maps and graphs working together

  • Plugins!
