Development of a Web-based learning tool to enhance formal deductive thinking in geometry. (English)

Preparing students for proof type geometry problem solving has become a key issue for mathematics educators. Prevailing instructional strategies have been shown to be inappropriate to address the complexities of deductive geometry. In this report, we propose a design of a learning environment to address the above issue. We argue that this model has a potential to help students to make progress up to van Hiele Level 3 and to acquire skills required to solving a range of proof type geometry problems.
