Micromath, 12, (3), .
This booklet aims to provide ideas, suggestions and approaches to using dynamic geometry software. Particular strengths of the booklet include the advice on getting started and how this needs time, the crucial difference between drawing and construction, and the encouragement to link work at the computer to other classroom activity. While there is more to be done in terms of ways of embedding DGS software in mathematics teaching, there is much in the booklet that teachers will find useful and stimulating.
