The purposes of this action research were to examine the effects of using the Geometer’s Sketchpad (GSP) in teaching the analytic geometry and to investigate student attitudes toward learning mathematics with the GSP. Participants of this research were 36 grade-10 students in Samsenwittayalai School, Bangkok, Thailand. The researcher provided 8 periods for teaching and conducting the research. Research findings show that the GSP helped students to improve their understanding in mathematical concepts. The designed learning activities with the GSP have efficiencies at 87.5/80.56 which are higher than the standard level at 80/80. Students have positive attitudes in learning mathematics with the GSP.
