ab: The authors deal with the problem how can a teacher to allow students to
come up with their procedural ideas and help them to understand the
conceptual features of the function, as well. For these purposes,
modern technology, of course, offers natural solutions for these kinds
of activities. They present and discuss scores of this case study
developing the worksheet into a sophisticated CAL environment for the
function concept and for carrying out later a more systematic study,
including also qualitative analysis. The authorsâ€™ pre-test students
shows that function is probably handled in school mathematics more or
less procedurally without trying to conceptualize it. The post-test
students scores show when conducting this case study, many new
dynamical ideas for developing of mathematics instructions on the
university level are rising, not only concerning this restricted topic
but also in more general.
