Abstract

This paper contains information on a study which investigated the use of GeoGebra software in teaching and learning circle geometry enhancing Grade 11 learners' academic achievement in South Africa. The study employed a quantitative methodological research design that included non-equivalent (pre-test and post-test) quasi-experimental research. One hundred and seven (108) Grade 11 learners participated in the study. Sixty (60) learners were in the experimental while 48 learners participated as control group. The experimental group was taught with incorporated in the teaching and learning of circular geometry theorem using GeoGebra software. The control group was taught circle geometry by the teacher using traditional teaching methods (chalkboard, marker board and textbooks). The instruments used for the data collection for the study was pre and post-test on circle geometry theorem for Grade 11. The result of the study showed that between the experimental and control groups, that there were statistically significant differences after using GeoGebra software to teach. GeoGebra software's intervention appears to increase learners' academic performance in circle geometry when compared to learners who are taught using traditional methods. The study recommends that teachers should integrate GeoGebra software in their teaching especially in circle geometry.
