Incorporating the dynamic mathematics software GeoGebra into a history of mathematics course

ABSTRACT The purpose of this study was to investigate pre-service teachers’ views about the history of mathematics course in which GeoGebra was used. The qualitative research design was used in this


GeoGebra is an interactive mathematics software program for teaching and learning mathematics in a new way. GeoGebra can help to solve algebra and geometry in a new way from primary level to


The results of the study indicated that dynamic structure of GeoGebra helped students formalize and visualize mathematical relations and concretize abstract ideas and motivated students, while the inadequacy of physical environment and computer literacy, the lack of students’ understanding of mathematical solutions path and the length of some formulas are seen as the limitations arising from the use of geoGebra.

Geogebra — A complex digital tool for highly effective math and science teaching

The main and the newest possibilities of the software environment Geogebra which joins dynamical geometry, work with algebraic expressions, graphs, spreadsheet, and the CAS environment into an unique unit that can be usable in teaching from primary school to university.


It is concluded that computer-assisted instruction method in which dynamic mathematics software is used has a positive effect on the achievement of pre- service mathematics teachers in applications of derivative and pre-service teachers’ opinions support the usage of this method in other mathematics lessons.

The aim research is to obtain a description of designing of the GeoGebra-assisted mathematical task created by pre-service mathematics teachers. This study uses a qualitative approach to observe the

Teaching Algebra and Geometry with GeoGebra: Preparing Pre-Service Teachers for Middle Grades/Secondary Mathematics Classrooms

GeoGebra is a free, open-source program that combines features of dynamic geometry software, computer algebra systems, and spreadsheet programs that is used to enhance pre-service and in-service mathematics teachers’ mathematical thinking.

Conceptual Understanding of Definite Integral with GeoGebra

The computer-assisted instruction method using GeoGebra was found to positively contribute to the success of teaching the definite integral topic and to facilitate conceptual learning of the relationship between the lower sum, upper sum and Riemann sum.

Pre-Service Mathematics Teachers' Views about GeoGebra and Its Use.

The purpose of this study was to determine the views of pre-service Mathematics teachers’ (PMTs) about GeoGebra and its use after being exposed to GeoGebra activities designing processes. This is a




Research indicates that despite the numerous benefits of using ICT in mathematics education, the process of embedding ICT in classrooms is a slow and complex process. Most teachers need more than

The Role of a Dynamic Software Program for Geometry in the Strategies High School Mathematics Students Employ

This study investigated the ways in which the technological tool, The Geometer's Sketchpad, mediated the understandings that high school Honors Geometry students developed about geometric

Student interpretations of a dynamic geometry environment

The analysis presented in this paper is offered as a contribution to understanding the relationship between the specific tool being used, in this case the dynamic geometry environment Cabri-Geometre, and the kind of thinking that may develop as a result of interactions with the tool.

Integration of Technology in the Design of Geometry Tasks with Cabri-Geometry

The analysis indicates that the role played by the technology moved from being a visual amplifier or provider of data towards being an essential constituent of the meaning of tasks and as a consequence affected the conceptions of the mathematical objects that the students might construct.

Research on Dynamic Geometry Software (DGS)—an introduction

Research on every characteristic DGS-feature (dragmode, macro-constructions, locus of points) is presented in one paper from an author having done research on the feature.

Cabri-géomètre: Does Dynamic Geometry Software (DGS) Change Geometry and its Teaching and Learning?

It is stated that DGS deeply changes geometry if it is taken as a human activity integrating the use of modern instruments like DGS.

New protocols for solving geometric calculation problems incorporating dynamic geometry and computer algebra software

These computer-aided graphical, numerical and algebraic methods of solution are illustrated and discussed by means of examples, using an appropriate choice of software tools, and provide an indication of the possible future when fully integrated software is available.

Mathematics Teacher Education and Technology

This chapter presents recent applications of videotapes, multimedia resources, internet-based communities, and tutorial conferencing facilities in pre-service and in-service education of mathematics teachers.

Representation, Vision and Visualization: Cognitive Functions in Mathematical Thinking. Basic Issues for Learning.

The purpose in this panel is to focus on some main distinctions which are necessary to analyze the mathematical knowledge from a learning point of view and to explain how many students come up against difficulties at each level of curriculum and very often cannot go beyond.
