Abstract: 
The study investigated the effect of exploratory computer-based instruction on pupils’
conceptual and procedural knowledge of graphs. Many previous studies compared
the effect of computer-assisted instruction with traditional teacher-directed teaching
and any difference in performance might be due to a different pedagogical approach
instead of the use of information technology (IT). In this study, both the experimental
and control classes were taught using a guided discovery method to explore the
characteristics of the exponential and logarithmic curves. One class used an
interactive computer algebra system called LiveMath, while the other did not have
access to IT. The findings indicated a significant difference in pupils’ conceptual and
procedural knowledge. This seemed to suggest that there was an inherent advantage
of using IT to explore mathematical concepts.
