Metaphors and Images in Teaching. What Research Says to the Science and Mathematics Teacher. Number 5.

This document is partitioned into five sections: (1) method; (2) metaphors and images; (3) teacher change; (4) what we learned from these studies; and (5) some questions for the consideration of science and mathematics teachers.
