Bridging the Divide--Seeing Mathematics in the World through Dynamic Geometry
Aydin, Hatice; Monaghan, John
Teaching Mathematics and Its Applications: An International Journal of the IMA, v30 n1 p1-9 Mar 2011
In TMA, Oldknow (2009, "TEAMAT", 28, 180-195) called for ways to unlock students' skills so that they increase learning about the world of mathematics and the objects in the world around them. This article examines one way in which we may unlock the student skills. We are currently exploring the potential for students to "see" mathematics in the real world through "marking" mathematical features of digital images using a dynamic geometry system (GeoGebra). In this article we present, as a partial response to Oldknow, preliminary results. (Contains 4 figures.)
