Summary: The current mathematical education calls for a learning environment from the constructionism perspective that actively creates mathematical objects. This research first analyzes JavaMAL's expression `move' that enables students to express the agent's behavior constructively before they learn vector as a formal concept. Since expression `move' is based on a coordinate, it naturally corresponds with the expression of vectors used in school mathematics and lets students take an embodied approach to the concept of vector. Furthermore, as a design tool, expression `move' can be used in various activities that include vector structure. This research studies the educational significance entailed in JavaMAL's expression `move'.
