Students' Use of Imagery in Solving Qualitative Problems in Kinematics.
Kozhevnikov, Maria; Hegarty, Mary; Mayer, Richard
This report describes a study that investigated the relationship between mental imagery and problem solving in physics, specifically in kinematics. A distinction is made between visual imagery and spatial imagery used in solving physics problems. The results of this study indicate that while spatial imagery may promote problem solving success, the use of visual imagery presents an obstacle to problem solving in kinematics.
