Abstract [en]

 To investigate students- ways of working with concrete materials in mathematics, a three-dimensional static artefact was constructed and made available to upper secondary students, with pre-knowledge only in two-dimensional coordinate geo¬metry, for solving problems about planes and straight lines in space. Artefact interactivity was generally high, even students also disregarded the model to work only numerically with the coordinates, building on know¬ledge about lines in two dimensions. The model was used when trying to convince other students in the group.
