Preparing for the Online Competition “Mathematics with a Computer”

Objectives To form knowledge and skills to prepare and organize learning activities in inquiry-based style by combining classical tools and ITC (dynamic geometry software constructions).
Description of material The course uses developed virtual learning environments for math education and themes from past online competitions. The methodology is related to working with ready to use products, modifying them, finding solutions with specified accuracy, dipping in a research atmosphere, experiencing different approaches and interactive learning methods. Emphasis is also placed on participation in online competitions. The specialized mathematical software used is free. The materials were developed by Bulgarian Academy of Science in 2015.
