# Computer Supported Evolution Inside Van Hiele Levels 1 and 2

### Borislav Lazarov, Rumyana Papancheva

#### Abstract

The goal of the study is to clarify the communicative abilities of 5th grade students related to the computer supported geometry education. Theoretical frame is the Van Hielesâ€™ model. The experimental teaching gives an idea of how the language characteristics of Level 1 and 2 could be improved by a short-term game-like math education. Some coding-decoding activities make students to be more accurate in written communications.
