Children learning to specify geometrical relationships using a dynamic geometry package
Pehkonen, E. (ed.)
In Proceedings 21st Conference of the International Group for the Psychology of Mathematics Education.
In order to understand the learning taking place when students use a dynamic geometry package such as Cabri-Géomètre, a particular focus for study needs to be on the learning mediated through employing such a resource. In this paper I describe how one pair of 12 year old students begin learning how to specify geometrical relationships in Cabri. I argue that, while Cabri provides certain elements of the mathematical language necessary for the articulation of relevant mathematical ideas, significant aspects must be provided by the teacher.
