Radakovic, Davorka; Herceg, Dorde – Acta Didactica Napocensia, 2013
Dynamic geometry software (DGS) is often used for development of interactive teaching materials in many subjects, not only mathematics. These interactive materials can contain hundreds of elements in order to represent complex objects, and script programs to control their behavior. We propose an approach for creating, importing and using…
