This year long study compared students of average ability in three high school Geometry classes that utilized computer software in varying amounts. One class utilized the software Geometry Inventor twice a week, one class utilized the software once a week and the other class did not use the software. The means for the three groups were compared on twelve chapter tests as well as first and second semester tests. The only significant differences found were for the introductory chapter and the chapter on transformational Geometry. The group not utilizing the software scored higher in both instances. These results indicate that using computer software may not be beneficial when teaching certain topics in Geometry. It was observed that using computer software did improve student interest and participation in Geometry.
