This study examined the effects of the Geometer’s Sketchpad program as a motivational tool in teaching high school algebra. Thirty-four ninth grade algebra students were randomly selected, assigned and participated. Teacher-constructed pretest and posttests, consisting of twenty-five questions, were administered. A t-test for independent samples revealed significance at the p = .05.
