Teachers' Scaffolding of Students' Learning of Geometry While Using a Dynamic Geometry Program
Dove, Anthony; Hollenbrands, Karen
International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, v45 n5 p668-681 2014
This study examined the scaffolds that three high school mathematics teachers provided to their geometry students as they used technology to explore geometric ideas. Teachers often used structured activities using a dynamic geometry program and provided significant emotive feedback while students worked through the tasks. This provided opportunities for students to look, touch, verbalize and build geometrical representations individually and as a group.
