1. Coordinates of Reflected Points
Preparations
Open a new GeoGebra file.
Show the algebra window, input field, coordinate axes, and the grid (
View 
 menu).
In the
Options
menu set the
Point capturing 
to
on (Grid)
.

  Hints: Don’t forget to read the toolbar help if you don’t know how to use a tool.Try out new tools before you start the construction.
Inserting static text
Insert a heading into the graphics window of GeoGebra so your students knowwhat this dynamic figure is about:
Activate the
 
Text 
tool and click on the upper part of the drawing pad.

Type the following text into the appearing window:
Reflecting a point at the coordinate axes
 
You can change the properties of the text in the
Properties dialog 
(e.g.wording, font style, font size, formatting).
Click
Apply 
.
Adjust the position of the text using the
Move
tool.
Fix the position of the text so it can’t be moved accidentally (
Propertiesdialog 
– tab
Basic 
– 
Fix object 
).
Inserting dynamic text
Dynamic text refers to existing objects and adapts automatically to modifications,for example in
A = (3, 1)
the coordinates change whenever point
A
is moved.
Activate the
 
Text 
tool and click on the drawing pad.
Type
A =
into the appearing window.
 
Hint: This will be the static part of the text and won’t change if point
A
ismoved.
Insert the dynamic part of this text by clicking on point
A
either in thealgebra or the graphics window.
o
GeoGebra will insert the name of the point into the text field andadd quotation marks around the already existing (static) text.
o
Additionally, GeoGebra adds a + symbol to connect the static anddynamic part of the text.
o
Note: The new syntax of the text is
"A = " + A
 
Click
Apply 
.
Fix the position of the text so it can’t be moved accidentally (
Propertiesdialog 
– tab
Basic 
– 
Fix object 
). Note: The text shows the coordinates of point
A
and adapts automatically tomodifications of its position.
