Modern educational trends include creation of new types of electronic study texts, using of information systems and dynamic IT programmes. Future mathematics teachers must have high quality mathematics knowledge and basic knowledge of technical education, e.g. knowledge of technical aimed construction which are used in technical branches and technical praxis. Creation of study texts whose parts are graphical animation of geometrical and technical characters contribute to upgrade future mathematic teachers training. Graphical animations model both geometrical and technical constructions. We would like to present our practical skills in creation and using of graphical animation in teachers training.

Dynamic graphical programmes make possible to change parameters of shapes and lead student and pupils to find out new features of shapes. We can show the construct explanation in many examples. It is very important in mathematics training to teach mathematics formula with understanding. The traditional teaching of school geometry which is realized with help of classical facilitation, drawing with scribing compass and ruler, is important not only for creation of manual skills but also it contributes to create quality term system. At present time in ICT-technology period the mathematics teacher can exploit more didactical effective methods. The quality of term process could be influenced by using ITC-technology in geometry training. ICT-technologies can include mathematical programmes which have dynamic environment and enable to make model of various situations. Dynamic models lead to deeper understanding of mathematical term and the understanding of mathematical terms influences the keeping in mind.

The article describes the role of computer in mathematical training, and first of all in geometry. We analyse dates of our research (questionnaire) which we carried out with students at Faculty of Education at Palacky University in the town Olomouc. Mathematics students at Department of Mathematics filled out questionnaire concerning their attitude to question: do digital constructions help students to better understand the solution of constructional problems.
