What to bring

All delegates should bring a laptop and (optionally) a tablet.

All will receive a free copy of the latest version of Autograph (3.3) for Mac and PC

Why is Autograph different?

Autograph is widely used by teachers and students on PCs and Macs, in the UK and many other countries of the world, and a version for IOS and Android tablets is well under way.

Autograph can help to visualise key concepts through dynamic objects, with a straightforward and friendly user interface.

Fabulous resources online (videos, data, images, tutorials) and files can be saved straight to HTML for viewing on the web.




Be prepared!

MONDAY 24th FEBRUARY
3 - 5:30pm AUTOGRAPH FOR AGES 11-16

TUESDAY 25th FEBRUARY
3 - 5:30pm AUTOGRAPH FOR AGES 16-19





MONDAY 24th February
AUTOGRAPH for 11-16 year olds


3 - 5:30pm

This session will cover graphing topics for the younger students. The interface gives users time to explore and investigate using a controllable 'slow plot' feature, and animations are particularly effective because of the ability to control the step in real time.

Topics will include the transformations of shapes and functions, fitting mathematically interesting images, and some elementary data handling.

The tablet version is under development, but this will be an opportunity for a sneak preview of this exciting new 'Cloud-based' Autograph.

TUESDAY 25th February
AUTOGRAPH for 16-19 year olds


3 - 5:30pm

With more advanced material, the possibilities for using controllable dependent objects are even more effective.

We will explore 2D topics from simple geometry to advanced functions, and 3D topics: from transformations of shapes to surfaces, lines, planes, and volumes of revolutuion.

Autograph is also particularly effective in the teaching of probability and statistics topics using real data.

Discrete and continuous probability distributions can be explored, together with the creation of large data sets.
