## Abstract

Abstract: This paper presents a study using the designed-based research approach on a blended project-based learning environment with the use of Web 2.0 and dynamic mathematics software. Participants in this study were a group of grade 9 students. The study investigated how with the use of online collaboration and feedback from others, students were able to overcome their struggle to understand the new topic and using a new online dynamic mathematics software: Geogebra. With the timely and appropriate intervention that used relevant technologies students eventually achieve deep learning in mathematics so that they are more adept in making connections, relating ideas to prior knowledge and transferring concepts learnt to solving problems in real-world context. This paper concludes with how the learning environment will be refined and implemented again in 2010.
