Classroom implications of research on dynamic geometry software

Classroom implications of research on dynamic geometry software
This short user-review summarise the implications for classroom teaching of research that has investigated the use of dynamic geometry software (DGS) in the teaching and learning of mathematics. Overall, the research has found that it can take quite a long time for the benefits of using DGS to emerge but that this investment is worthwhile in developing students’ knowledge of geometry. The sorts of tasks that students tackle, the form of teacher input and the general classroom atmosphere are all important factors.

Abstract

This short user-review summarise the implications for classroom teaching of research that has investigated the use of dynamic geometry software (DGS) in the teaching and learning of mathematics. Overall, the research has found that it can take quite a long time for the benefits of using DGS to emerge but that this investment is worthwhile in developing students’ knowledge of geometry. The sorts of tasks that students tackle, the form of teacher input and the general classroom atmosphere are all important factors.
