SECONDARY SCHOOL PUPILS' PERCEPTION OF THE PLANE SECTIONS OF SELECTED SOLID FIGURES.
BOE, BARBARA L.
TWO METHODS OF RESPONSE DESCRIBED BY PIAGET AND INHELDER FOR DRAWING APPROPRIATE BOUNDARIES AND SELECTING APPROPRIATE PREDRAWN BOUNDARIES FOR HYPOTHETICALLY CUT, SOLID GEOMETRIC FIGURES WERE INVESTIGATED TO SEE WHETHER SECONDARY SCHOOL STUDENTS COULD RESPOND IN APPROPRIATELY TO THE MATHEMATICAL TASKS. THE RESPONSES OF 8TH-, 10TH-, AND 12TH-GRADE STUDENTS TO 16 SECTIONING TASKS WERE IDENTIFIED AND EVALUATED. NONE OF THE 72 SUBJECTS DEMONSTRATED THE ABILITY TO DRAW AND IDENTIFY GEOMETRIC SECTIONS WITH CONSISTENT ACCURACY. PREDICTED APPROPRIATE RESPONSES DESCRIBED BY PIAGET AND INHELDER WERE NOT VALIDATED.
