This study examined the impact of using the Cognitive Tutor Software (CTS) on students’ conceptual knowledge of slope. The CTS is an intelligent tutoring system that aims to improve students’ mathematics learning by providing an interactive learning environment where students can work with various representations of mathematical concepts and receive immediate feedback. In the study, one group of students used the CTS to solve problems about slope, and the other group solved the same set of problems with paper and pencil. The findings indicated that students who used the CTS displayed considerable increase in their conceptual knowledge of slope, in particular by identifying slope values and explaining their contextual meanings from algebraic, textual and graphical representations of linear functions. The study also revealed that the CTS enabled students to improve their knowledge of slope through offering multiple representations of linear functions and individualized hints.
