Software Tools for Geometrical Problem Solving: Potentials and Pitfalls


IJCFML Volume 6, Number 3, ISSN 1382-3892


Explores the role of software tools in geometry problem solving and how these tools, in interaction with activities that embed the goals of teachers and students, mediate the problem solving process. Through analysis of successful student responses, shows how dynamic software tools can not only scaffold the solution process but also help students move from argumentation to logical deduction.
