This paper focuses on the referential roles played by dragging moves on dynamic-geometry representations in a collaborative-geometry problem-solving context. Through an interaction analysis of chat excerpts where dragging is used by a team of students to explore the geometric properties of a given polygon, the paper investigates the role of dragging on the facilitation of joint mathematical meaning making online. Our qualitative findings suggest that the indexical properties of the dynamic constructions are specified and recalibrated through the coordination of dragging actions with textual chat, where the two types of actions mutually elaborate each other. © ISLS.
