Abstract

The small desire to learn mathematics among students, difficulties to master the material can be solved if we approach their visual representation. Mathematical books that contain only problems without their visual representation are hardly acceptable by students. So, demonstration and visualization play an important role in the teaching process of the subject mathematics in primary, secondary schools and universities. They make the teaching content interesting and accessible, especially when technical devices are used.

This paper is the beginning of the research in which we will have two groups of students, at two Universities: Mother Teresa Skopje and Goce Delchev Stip, which will process mathematical content (algebra, geometry, analysis) in two different ways (some with GeoGebra and on a computer, and others without visualization and GeoGebra) then will be done testing, the results will be compared and a conclusion will be drawn. For this purpose, a student questionnaire was made to see what their thinking about learning mathematics with visualization in both University and the results from questionnaire are given in this paper. Complete results of а whole research will be published additionally.

The software we chose to be GeoGebra because it is easy for use and is offered free of charge. It is dynamic mathematics software, supporting science, technology, engineering and mathematics education.
