Abstract

In this paper, one innovative VMW (Virtual Manipulatives and Whiteboard) system is proposed. It exploits multi-presentation mode transformation to improve geometry problem posing/solving process based on the pedagogical theory, "Children should construct their geometry concept from the concrete items to abstract ideas through physical or mental manipulation". Besides some innovation in design and implementation, the proposed system had been evaluated with one pilot study to investigate its perceived acceptance, and analyzed students' solving strategies from their whiteboard explanation. The results show our proposed system is useful and actually has positive effects for solving geometry problem.
