**WHAT**

- A research project aimed at studying the use of dynamic geometry software as a spatial programming language at the primary school level.

**WHO**

- Nathalie Sinclair, Simon Fraser University.

Collaborators

- Victoria Guyevskey
- Sandy Bakos
- Mathieu Thibault

**WHERE**

See http://www.sfu.ca/geometry4yl/websketchpad.html

**OUTCOMES**

- Two month classroom intervention with grade 2/3 students, experimenting with CT activities centrally involving geometry, spatial reasoning and the use of dynamic geometry software.

**DISSEMINATION**

- Sinclair, N. and Patterson, M. (to appear). The dynamic geometrisation of computer programming. Mathematics Thinking and Learning.

**NEXT STEPS**

- Preparing two PME papers based on the work conducted in the grade 2/3 classroom, which focused on constructing shapes and on looping.
- Preparation for classroom experimentation next year, which will be in a grade 5 classroom.
