Abstract: We are developing a socio-technical system to support group cognition among math students in the form of significant mathematical discourse about dependencies in dynamic-geometry constructions. Analysis of a pilot trial in a typical early cycle of our design-based-research approach revealed barriers to group success from both software and mathematics issues, and demonstrated that participants "cycled" between these types of issues. We are responding by developing a curriculum to address the uncovered technical and cognitive issues. We present the findings of our pilot study and the curriculum design criteria that are emerging from continuing cycles of re-design, prototyping, testing and analysis.
