Visual Imagery Mediation for Learning Mathematical Concepts and Problem Solving.
Young, Judith K.; Ragan, Tillman J.
This paper briefly reviews some of the literature on the use of visual imagery in the conceptualization and solution of mathematical problems, especially its use in the learning of mathematics by children, and notes that a mutually facilitative effect occurs between mathematics and visual aptitude. A bibliography, a short list of resource materials, and samples of relevant curriculum materials are provided. (FM)
