Teaching and Learning Mathematics with SSP

The Super-SketchPad (SSP) is not only a dynamic geometry software, but also it is a software package that is capable of producing slides, proving geometry theorems, making symbolic and numeric computations. In addition, it is capable of drawing statistical graphs and providing program environment. In fact, it can be called a dynamic mathematics software for education. Teachers could prepare courses more effectively and students will find mathematics more interesting and accessible with SSP. In the past two years, a project supported by Chinese Ministry of Education with SSP has been implemented to improve teaching and learning mathematics in more than 130 middle schools and the responses from schools and students are surprisingly positive.
