Designing Tasks with Interactive Geometry Applets for Use in Research: Some Methodological Issues
Sinclair, Margaret
International Journal for Technology in Mathematics Education, v13 n1 p31-36 2006
This paper discusses some of the results of a study carried out with two classes of grade 7 students (11-12 years old); the aim of the project was to design, develop, and test interactive geometry tasks for use in future research into how (or whether) interactive applets help students learn mathematics. The study tasks were developed around the topic of transformations. This paper focuses on two of the tasks; it draws attention to the complexity of the design process and the need to explicitly address methodological issues in applet design research. (Contains 2 figures.)
