Scientific Diagrams: How Well Can Students Read Them? What Research Says to the Science and Mathematics Teacher. Number 3.
Lowe, Richard K.
To determine whether scientific diagrams are helpful to students, researchers involved students in a mind probing investigation. Specifically, researchers wanted to know what goes on (and does not go on) in the minds of students when they encounter diagrams during science instruction. Based upon the results of these studies, suggestions are made on how best to use diagrams to help students learn science. (ZWH)
