DESCRIPTION

The educational activities of this intervention tool are conceived to support metacognitive. They promote the development of strategies that allow students to support memory in its different function: to retrieve theorems (in order to infer information to be used), to keep in mind information obtained form the text (hypothesis), and to process information in order to reach the required thesis (in this regards, see also Intervention tools located in Reasoning area and Geometry domain).

EDUCATIONAL AIM

The intervention tool is aimed at Constructing strategies in order to retrieve geometric facts and theorems or properties, keep them in memory and use them for reasoning.
