ab: Summary: The aim of this paper is to introduce a LOGO-based educational
environment called GEOMLAND or Plane Geometry System (PGS). It is most
appropriate for 13-16 year old students. Using PGS students work like
real mathematicians - they explore and develop mathematical ideas
themselves. GEOMLAND also creates a specific class-room culture
supporting teachers’ and students’ creativity. An example of
students’ mathematics in investigation based on the PGS is described
in the article. The paper also deals with some of the problems of
learning geometry by the exploration and discovery, and the teachers’
involvement in the use of the PGS in school.
