Abstract:

 This paper explores the role that is played by technological representations used in e-classes during pandemic, in promoting interactions among peers and teacher & students in order to provoke mathematical understandings. The analysis is based upon the theoretical framework as the Johonson Mathematical Representation Model which is an extension of Lesh’s Multimodal model of translations amongst the representations. Findings of the study suggest that Constructive tasks which used dynamic pictorial representations were successful in capturing the interest and curiosity among students and provided ample of opportunities to students to interact and think mathematically.

Key words: Representations, Geogebra, Mathematics
