Dynamic geometry environment (DGE), such as Sketchpad, is a powerful tool for exploring and discovering geometric properties. It is a good platform for experimenting and verifying mathematical statements because is allows users to manipulate geometric objects. In this paper, I will discuss how DGE may contribute to the experimenting process. As an illustration, I will describe some possible ways of doing experiments in Sketchpad exploration tasks. I hope this paper can give some insights on integrating DGE in geometry learning and teaching. Copyright © 2009 香港數學教育學會.
