Abstract

This paper will present a case study that investigated the process of using some mathematical software packages to learn geometrical concepts. The purpose of this study was to develop possible patterns of learning geometrical concept, which may enhance children's concrete-abstract thinking and abstract-concrete thinking. The software packages used in this study were LogoPlus and Geometer's Sketchpad. Four children learned geometrical concepts with designed learning process. Their learning processes were observed. A CAC (concrete-abstract-concrete) learning pattern was summarized from this study.
