Abstract

There has been a call for mathematics teachers to integrate technology into their classroom. This call has been answered by Dynamic geometry software (DGS). DGS is software that allows the user to create and manipulate geometric constructions. DGS was developed with the aim to improve the educational experience of students. The main attributes of DGS is its ability to be manipulated by the user with relative ease, speeding up the construction aspect of geometry. We will examine current research into the effects of using DGS in the classroom and a sample lesson with DGS.
