Abstract: Learning of the relation between mathematical effects and the underlying formula is a huge step for learners, which are used to execute rather basic arithmetic calculations up to this point. This usually happens in high school and pupils are often overstrained by the amount of abstraction which is required. In order to help students to overcome this gap, we have developed an application for a multitouch table. The pupils are able to grasp and move function graphs and see how the parameters of the formula change immediately. We have claimed that this approach leads to a better and faster understanding of the facts to be learned. In order to evaluate our approach we have carried through several workshops with a focus group and a small user study with pupils at the relevant age. In this paper we will describe the findings and we will shortly sketch the resulting (re-) implementation of our system.
