ab: Summary: The paper explores changes in technology that have implications
for the teaching and learning of school mathematics. To this end, it
examines aspects of interactive mathematical textbooks; specifically it
analyzes functions authors may intend to be carried out by embedded
interactive diagrams. The paper analyzes theoretical as well as
practical lessons that I learned while designing such a book. It is the
purpose of this article to provide a rough, preliminary collection of
categories of diagram functions that would allow an orderly discussion
of the subject. While this is not an empirical study, the hypotheses
about student practices with interactive diagrams are based on a long
series of studies related to the learning of algebra in a
technologically-rich environment.
