Although the students had done introductory work on deductive geometry related to congruence and parallelism in grade 10 and on similarity in grade 11, none had worked with dynamic geometry software.
The control group members were not exposed to any dynamic geometry software prior to the end of the study.
For example, page 201 refers to dynamic geometry software (which is well indexed) and programming environments such as MicroWorlds: but the latter term is not indexed, nor is there any mention in the Index of Logo (which is the programming language of MicroWorlds, although this is not explained, later, on p 218) or programming software, generally, or programming in Excel.
In other words, some students have to see it to believe it, and TI's dynamic geometry software lets them see it.
In this chapter is a brief discussion about the role of Dynamic Geometry Software (DGS) such as Cabri Geometry and Geometer's Sketchpad in exploring geometric constructions and making and "proving" conjectures.
