The Effects of Spatial Instruction on Mathematical Problem-Solving Performance.
Moses, Barbara
This study investigated the effects of a series of mathematics lessons which were designed to encourage a spatial mode of thinking. Using fifth-grade students from four intact classrooms, a pretest and posttest battery composed of spatial tests, reasoning tests, and a problem-solving test, were administered to the experimental and two control classes as a measure of the effects of the instruction. Results showed that mathematical problem-solving performance increased significantly, particularly for students of low reasoning ability. (Author/HM)
