Abstract: The dynamic geometry environments have played a key role in the teaching and learning of Geometry and in developing motivation. These programs are a powerful tool for the development of reasoning, to improve the geometric visualization, the communications skills, and besides that, the geometry becomes less static, and mathematics more appealing and more creative.
This paper presents the development of a research task which aims to predispose the students to create math and, thus, to increase their self-esteem in this area, particularly in geometry. In this sense we used Geogebra which has been strongly valued and recognized by national and international community and of which we are frequent users.
The methodology adopted in this research task follows a qualitative and interpretative approach. The data collection was conducted in two classes of the 3rd year of the Graduation in Elementary Education, in the academic year 2013/14, enrolled in the course: Mathematics, Materials and Technology.
Keywords: Dynamic Geometry, Geogebra, Geometry, Research Task.
