Functions of Interactive Visual Representations in Interactive Mathematical Textbooks

IJCFML Volume 10, Number 3, ISSN 1382-3892


The paper explores changes in technology that have implications for the teaching and learning of school mathematics. To this end, it examines aspects of interactive mathematical textbooks; specifically it analyzes functions authors may intend to be carried out by embedded interactive diagrams. The paper analyzes theoretical as well as practical lessons that I learned while designing such a book. It is the purpose of this article to provide a rough, preliminary collection of categories of diagram function that would allow an orderly discussion of the subject. While this is not an empirical study, the hypotheses about student practices with interactive diagrams are based on a long series of studies related to the learning of algebra in a technologically-rich environment.
