Guest editorial. Proof in dynamic geometry environments: a PME special issue
Jones, Keith, Gutiérrez, Ángel and Mariotti, Maria Alessandra (2000) Guest editorial. Proof in dynamic geometry environments: a PME special issue. Educational Studies in Mathematics, 44, (1-3), 1-3. (doi:10.1023/A:1012706005027).
This article suggests that there is a range of evidence that working with dynamic geometry software affords students possibilities of access to theoretical mathematics, something that can be particularly elusive with other pedagogical tools. Yet the paper concludes that further research into the use dynamic geometry software to support the development of students’ mathematical thinking could usefully focus on the nature of the tasks students tackle, the form of teacher input, and the role of the classroom environment and culture.
