Abstract
Project-based learning is a teaching method that supports students' concrete understanding of abstract mathematical concepts. The method engages students' interest and curiosity by allowing them to complete projects that relate to real-world situations. This method of learning requires teachers to plan and develop projects that encourage students to work individually and in groups to solve problems, plan, collaborate, make decisions, develop technology skills and present projects to their peers. Project-based learning was implemented in a high school classroom. The effectiveness of Project-based learning implementation in the high school geometry classroom was assessed and analyzed to see if technology use and hands-on experiences improved the level of students' mathematical comprehension. Students expressed a sense of satisfaction in learning mathematical concepts through the use of technology and handson experiences. Mathematical concepts became clearer with the use of tangible objects and technological devices.
