Abstract

This study aims to identify the cognitive processes of eighth-grade female students
while learning the topic of quadrilaterals using GeoGebra. Following the cognitive
theory developed by Anna Sfard, the study attempts to answer the following
question: What are the cognitive processes of eighth-grade female students while
learning the topic of quadrilaterals using the GeoGebra program? Data was
derived from two groups of eighth-grade female students attending the Balata
Girls School run by UNRWA. The two groups performed six activities on the topic
of quadrilaterals and congruence, and data was collected using video recordings
of the students participating in these activities. The results of the study indicate
that the teachers’ routines and the students’ routines were influenced by each other,
and these routines affected the development of the students’ narratives and words.
The results also demonstrate that the use of technology, especially the GeoGebra
program, alongside collaborative group work, has a positive impact on the
cognitive aspects of students learning mathematics. In light of these results, it is
necessary to focus on using the discovery routine in the mathematics classroom
through the use of computer software such as the GeoGebra program, which
allows the students to discover mathematical relations on their own.
