Concept Mapping and the Cartography of Cognition.
Wandersee, James H.
Journal of Research in Science Teaching, v27 n10 p923-36 Dec 1990
Because concept maps are designed to find out what the learner knows about a subject and are, in effect, maps of cognition, this article synthesizes relevant facts, concepts, and principles from cartography and applies them to concept mapping. The metaphor of the map and its applicability for representing scientific concepts are discussed. (PR)
