Soldano, Carlotta; Luz, Yael; Arzarello, Ferdinando; Yerushalmy, Michal – Educational Studies in Mathematics, 2019
The paper describes two versions of an inquiry-based activity in geometry, designed as a game between two players. The game is inspired by Hintikka's semantic game, which is a familiar tool in the field of logic to define truth. The activity is designed in a dynamic geometry environment (DGE). The inquiry is initially guided by the game itself and…
