Soviet Studies in the Psychology of Learning and Teaching Mathematics, Volume 5, The Development of Spatial Abilities.
Kilpatrick, Jeremy, Ed.; Wirszup, Izaak, Ed.
The series is a collection of translations from the Soviet literature of the past 25 years on research in the psychology of mathematical instruction and the related methods of teaching mathematics. The aim of the series is to acquaint educators and teachers with directions, ideas, and accomplishments in the psychology of mathematics instruction in the Soviet Union. This volume contains four articles relating to the development of spatial abilities. The first article deals with spatial imagery at several grade levels; the second article reports the effectiveness of a set of exercises for developing spatial imagery; the third makes a case for more measuring tasks in the instructional process; and the fourth contains activities and exercises for teaching informal geometry. Related documents are ED 042 628, ED 042 632, ED 042 633, SE 016 666, and SE 016 668. (LS)
