Abstract Euclidean Geometry is a significant branch of mathematics that concerns the mathematics community. It is a subject of the school environment attracting scientists and educators to study its history more than any other subject of school mathematics. This thesis investigates the role and the use of images and tasks in the Greek Euclidean Geometry textbooks of Lyceum from 1975 to date. The aim is to examine the ways that Geometry concepts are introduced to students in texts through three categories of images and four categories of tasks. Furthermore, it will be identified whether the priorities of authors have changed or not. To this purpose, I employ the Anthropological Theory of the Didactic (ATD). The results have shown that there is a dominant category in images which has been used mostly from the authors; nevertheless, its use declines over time. As for the tasks, from 1990 onwards, the increase in the use of a particular category modified slightly the findings. It is found that Greek Euclidean Geometry textbooks put less emphasis on the mathematical proof over time and as a consequence the categories of tasks the students engaged are influenced. With a view to gain an insight in these phenomena, the results were linked to the wider socio-cultural context of educational reformations in Greece.
