This study examined the effects of using the Geometer’s Sketchpad (GSP) and the graphic calculator (GC) in the learning of the vertex form of quadratic functions among field dependent (FD) and field independent (FI) cognitive style students. The GSP and GCs are two innovative tools introduced in Malaysia in the teaching and learning of secondary school mathematics. This study found that the students performed as well when using the GSP or the GC in the learning of quadratic functions by way of the visualisation of graphs. The FI students outperformed the FD students in both tools. The implications of this study in using the GSP and GC in the mathematics classroom are discussed.
