In this work we investigate the potentiality of carrying out synergic activities using manipulative and virtual artefacts for the purposes of constructing/conceptualizing axial symmetry and its properties. The research study is based on the design and implementation of a teaching sequence involving 4th grade students. Both the design and the analysis of data is framed by the Theory of Semiotic Mediation (Bartolini Bussi & Mariotti, 2008) According to the results of the study the combined, intentional and controlled use of manipulative and virtual artefacts seems to develop a synergy whereby each activity enhances the potential of the other.

Abstract

In this work we investigate the potentiality of carrying out synergic activities using manipulative and virtual artefacts for the purposes of constructing/conceptualizing axial symmetry and its properties. The research study is based on the design and implementation of a teaching sequence involving 4th grade students. Both the design and the analysis of data is framed by the Theory of Semiotic Mediation (Bartolini Bussi & Mariotti, 2008) According to the results of the study the combined, intentional and controlled use of manipulative and virtual artefacts seems to develop a synergy whereby each activity enhances the potential of the other.
