Spatial and Modality Effects in Simple Mathematical Computation.
Deichmann, John; Beattie, Ian
This study explored the effects of visual (vertical and horizontal) and oral presentation modes upon simple mathematical computations (addition, subtraction, and multiplication). Seventy-two undergraduate education majors were employed as subjects. The placement of the process sign (left, middle, right) and whether a one or two digit number appeared first in the mathematical sentence was manipulated. The results demonstrated significant differences for modality, type of computation, sign and two-digit placement. Further, it appears that for the oral presentation, the process sign placed last is superior to the first position. (Author/MM)
