Abstract

This study was applied to the eight grade students of an elementary school owning a computer lab. Geometric attributes of three dimensional geometric objects were re-told to students by using Mathematica 7.0 software. Perceptions of students after using this software were detected with written interview. It was detected in computer-aided math instruction performed by using Mathematica7.0 software that a change in the positive direction occurred in mathematics perceptions of students.
