Space and Geometry. Papers from a Research Workshop.
Martin, J. Larry, Ed.; Bradbard, David A., Ed.
Seven papers presented at a research conference on space and geometry are contained in this monograph. The first paper gives an historical sketch of the development of geometry and discusses several considerations for selecting geometric content for the elementary school. Two papers deal with Piaget's research into the child's development of space and geometry concepts, and another paper suggests directions for further research on space from the Piagetian perspective. A fifth paper reviews the van Hiele levels of development in geometry and discusses the new Soviet geometry curriculum, another paper reviews cross-cultural research on perception, and the final paper examines some research issues concerning children's concepts of transformation geometry.
