Abstract

Information technology enables us to develop innovative learning/teaching tools for mathematics education both in the classroom and out-of-school activities. This paper shows a brief potential and challenges of using Augmented Reality (AR) in mathematics education. The learners can view geometrical objects in 3dimention having better understanding of the structures. Mobile phones or computer tablets can be used to view the 3D geometrical objects using special application software. Autodesk Maya software is used to draw geometrical objects and some AR viewing software can be used to view the objects in 3D. This paper will describe how to develop a simple AR system for the improvement of abilities of learning mathematics. Sample AR materials used for mathematics education at high school as well as university level will also be discussed.
