Vollrath, Hans-Joachim
Educational Studies in Mathematics, 8, 2, 211-24, Aug 77
Students, ranging from 8 years of age to 19 years, were used in an experiment to study understanding of the expression "similar" as it is used in colloquial speech when it is applied to geometrical figures. Results indicated that "similar" is understood in many different ways by students with the Euclidean meaning not being noticed. (MN)
