Abstract

The aim of this contribution to the Topic Study Group work is to focus on the effectiveness of physical and technological manipulation in terms of meaningful geometric learning gain, presenting an on-going research involving pupils at 4th, 5th and 6th grades. The main idea is to verify if an integrated laboratorial approach, exploiting the potentialities of both physical and technological instrument, can attempt to afford the building of new geometric concept and a firm understanding of geometrical relationships. According to the early results of the experience it seems that, within authentic learning situations, the integrated use of paper, scissors, strings, straws, geo-board and of the Interactive Collection 123…Cabri could guide pupils towards a progressive geometric mathematization.
