An Example of the Use of Dynamic Mathematics Software to Create Problem-Solving Environments That Serve Multiple Purposes
Interactive Learning Environments Volume 26, Number 5, ISSN 1049-4820
Problem-solving is regarded as a major component of mathematical performance, and well-designed problem-solving-based learning environments have the potential to assist students in developing a meaningful understanding of mathematical concepts and procedures. In this respect, given its various features, dynamic mathematics software has been regarded by mathematics educators as a promising tool for designing such environments. This study presents an example of the use of technology to create a dynamic learning environment through a discussion of the pedagogical value of a problem selected for an activity, followed by the implementation sequence of the problem-solving activity in the classroom. The students' experiences during the implementation of the activity are also discussed; and finally, an additional version of the problem is recommended for use in the classroom.
