Hand-held technologies have offered less support for learning about space and measurement than they have for other strands of mathematics. This paper describes a recent development which seems promising in this respect, Casio’s ClassPad 300. The mechanisms of providing interactive opportunities for students are described and illustrated, and some possible ways in which this sort of device might be used productively in mathematics learning are offered. A range of mathematical ideas are used, including geometric properties and relationships, coordinate geometry, transformations in the plane, mensuration and conics.
