Representation of Space and Students' Conceptions at High School Level.
Parzysz, Bernard
Educational Studies in Mathematics, v22 n6 p575-93 Dec 1991
Graphical representations of geometrical objects from high school textbooks are categorized according to the implicit conventions underlying their display. The fact that specific illustrations can lead to students' misconceptions about geometric objects is analyzed in relationship to the principle of parallel projection with implications for the development of students' problem-solving techniques.
