Fostering Students' Development of the Concept of Angles Using Technology
Richardson, Sue Ellen; Koyunkaya, Melike Yigit
Australian Primary Mathematics Classroom, v22 n1 p13-20 2017
We have used "GeoGebra," a dynamic geometry software environment, to explore how Year 4 students understand definitions of angles. Seven students defined angle and then completed several activities adapted for the dynamic environment. Afterward, students again shared their definitions of angles. We found that even a short investigation using dynamic geometry software could support students' development of angle definitions. We share tasks and investigation ideas using "GeoGebra" to support students' learning about angles.
