Cabri as a "Shared Workspace" within the Proving Process
Olivero, Federica
International Group for the Psychology of Mathematics Education, Paper presented at the 27th International Group for the Psychology of Mathematics Education Conference Held Jointly with the 25th PME-NA Conference (Honolulu, HI, Jul 13-18, 2003), v3 p429-436
This paper will discuss some findings from a study investigating the development of the proving process in a dynamic geometry environment. Through a detailed analysis of students' processes when working with open geometry problems involving conjecturing and proving in Cabri, an analytical and explanatory framework has been developed. This paper examines in particular the interactions between the students in the proving process. The analysis shows that Cabri works as a shared workspace, i.e. as a space which supports the interaction between students and the construction of shared knowledge in the proving process. (Contains 6 footnotes and 8 figures.) [For complete proceedings, see ED500858.]
