Proofs in Dynamic Geometry Environments
A key issue in Mathematics Education is how students can be supported in making transition from ‘it seems to be right’ to convincing arguments which work in general. In learning geometry, dynamic software environment may be useful as it enables students to interact with geometrical theory. It is extremely important to investigate ways in which dynamic geometry environments improve students’ understanding of the nature of mathematical proof and their skills in proofs. We analyse three applications of dynamic geometry software – heuristics, exploration and visualisation – as valuable tools in teaching proofs in geometry.
