In this paper we focus on applets that support mathematical investigation. In the context of analyzing and redesigning an applet from NCTM’ s Illuminations Web site, we consider two interrelated issues: (1) how the pedagogy of mathematical investigation may be manifested in a mathematical applet, and (2) how interface design principles may be used to enhance an applet’ s potential for supporting mathematical investigation. Mathematical investigation, as a pedagogical tool, is not a simple undertaking. Facilitating investigation adds significantly to the complexity of instructional design. Good design becomes possible when mathematics education and human-computer interaction design experts work together, rather than in isolation, taking into account pedagogical goals and interface design principles.
