VRMath: A 3D Microworld for Learning 3D Geometry
Yeh, Andy J. & Nason, Rodney A. (2004) VRMath: A 3D Microworld for Learning 3D Geometry. In World Conference on Educational Multimedia, Hypermedia & Telecommunications, 21-26, June, 2004, Lugano, Switzerland.
This paper reports on the design of a prototype VRLE (Virtual Reality Learning Environment) named VRMath. VRMath is an online application that utilises VR (Virtual Reality)technology combined with the power of a Logo-like programming language and hypermedia and the Internet to facilitate the learning of 3-Dimensional (3D) geometry concepts and processes. VRMath is being designed within the framework of a design-experiment (The Design-Based Research Collective, 2003) during which VRMath will evolve through a series of iteration cycles of design à enactment à reflection à redesign into an educational tool that will provide mathematics educators with new and more powerful ways of facilitating the construction of 3D geometry knowledge. During these iteration cycles, in addition to many new ways about thinking and doing mathematics being identified, implications to inform the future design of this and other VRLEs also will emerge.
Impact and interest:
Citation counts are sourced monthly from and citation databases.
These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
Citations counts from theindexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
Full-text downloads displays the total number of times this work’s files (e.g., a PDF) have been downloaded from QUT ePrints as well as the number of downloads in the previous 365 days. The count includes downloads for all files if a work has more than one.
