Two research strands that contribute to mathematical learning are addressed. The first strand is research around instructional uses of turtle geometry and the second relates to instructional uses of dynamic geometry environments. It is shown how, by merging programming and dynamic geometry, new ways of representing familiar mathematics can be created.
