Tola Bekene is a Ph.D. holder in Mathematics education. His research interest is teaching mathematics by technology.

Technology for teaching

Integration of technology in the 21 century has no doubt. in order to go with this century, it is better to see whether the current education more specifically Mathematics is integrated with the day technology or not. The study will comprise of three main ideas. what is the integration of technology to the perception of teachers' and students' sides? second, what does the educational curriculum of mathematics seems like? the third which educational theory helps the education to integrate technology into the education system?

Learners in the 21st century need technological support in the learning process because of the advancements made in technology for teaching and learning. A GeoGebra-oriented classroom uses one of these technologies that can be implemented in the classroom. The new developed cycle model implemented in the study and explored the effect of using GeoGebra mathematical software on students ’ perceptions to using GeoGebra software to learn calculus. A mixed research methodology was employed. In the quantitative part of the study, a closed-ended questionnaires were used by clustering into themes and interview for the qualitative part of the study. The study was conducted at a university in Ethiopia that lasts for four weeks, and the university was selected purposively. The quantitative data were analyzed using SPSS version 27 while the qualitative data were coded into themes and analyzed using computer software ATLAS.ti 9. Students expressed positive perceptions towards the use of GeoGebra for learning differential calculus and 74% of students were satisfied with the preferences of the GeoGebra lesson-oriented course offered in the study while 70% were also interested in scaffolding activities and activities included in the developed model during interventions. - The Effect of GeoGebra on Students' Abilities to Study Calculus

The study aimed to investigate the effect of GeoGebra on students’ ability to learn calculus. Calculus can be a challenging subject to teach. Moreover, students have problems, especially in connecting the concepts of calculus with the real world. Concerning gender, the study looked at the impact of utilizing GeoGebra Mathematical software on students’ calculus proficiency and ability to utilize GeoGebra software to learn calculus. The study developed a cycle model that posits nine steps to promote the teaching and learning process with the help of GeoGebra to improve the learning process. A quantitative research methodology was employed to achieve the goal of the study. A quasi-experiment with a pretest and posttest design was used in the quantitative part of the study. Students learning calculus were the subjects of the study, which took place at a university in Ethiopia. The quantitative data were analyzed using SPSS version 27. The results show that there is a significant difference between pretest and posttest in students’ performance (ability) when using GeoGebra mathematics software, indicating that students performed better after the intervention (F (1,64) = 10.495, p = 0.002 < 0.05). The treatment benefited both high- and low-ability pupils in their brain-based learning, although students in the experimental group, both female and male, outperformed those in the control group. While the GeoGebra-oriented learning approach to calculus has the potential to improve competency, it is still necessary that it be structured (cycle model) to address a specific deficiency. - The effect of GeoGebra on STEM students learning trigonometric functions
