The purposes of this research were to examine mathematics learning achievement of students by using the Geometer’s Sketchpad and to investigate student’s attitude toward using the Geometer’s Sketchpad. The topic used in this study was Conic Section. The participants consisted of 52 Grade 10 students in the second semester, academic Year 2014 at Suankularb Wittayalai School, Bangkok, Thailand. The instruments employed in this study were the Geometer’s Sketchpad, achievement test and questionnaire. Achievement test was used to assess students learning achievement in learning mathematics with the Geometer’s Sketchpad. The researcher employed questionnaire to evaluate student’s attitude toward using the Geometer’s Sketchpad in learning mathematics. The findings of this study showed that using Geometer’s Sketchpad as a learning tool enhanced students understanding mathematics concepts and promoted the positive attitudes toward using the Geometer’s Sketchpad.
