In this paper, we share some observations we have made in some of our courses. We give some examples that increase students' interest when given an opportunity to use some mathematics software exploring some concepts in the course content. For studying group action, which is one of the standard mathematical topics in algebra, we give some data to students and ask them to produce their own conjectures. Results show that our students are more willing to prove their own conjectures and eagerly try to explain them.
