Abstract

The aim for the research is to evaluate the effectiveness of the GSU-Based Learning Modules designed and developed by Tan (2011) improving the students’ understanding level in learning geometry. The research covered the topic of Shapes and Spaces KBSR for primary six students. The GSU-Based Learning Modules were implemented using the computer aided software, called Google Sketch-Up (GSU). A quasi experimental design, Wu’s Geometry Test (WGT) was used to gather the samples and data. Ten students were selected and put in a group accordingly to their levels of van-Hiele's thinking level, which were Below Level 0 (BL0), Level 0 (L0), and Level 1 (L1). Observations and interviews were adopted to gather information related to the students understanding level before and after the use of GSU-Based Learning Modules. Data were analysed based on three main categories of constructing, analysing and informal deduction of geometry shapes. The findings of this research showed a positive improvement and proved that GSU-Based Learning Modules were effective in improving the students’ understanding level in geometry
