Students' Understanding of Three-Dimensional Rectangular Arrays of Cubes.
Battista, Michael T.; Clements, Douglas H.
Journal for Research in Mathematics Education, v27 n3 p258-92 May 1996
Explores cognitive operations such as coordination, integration, and structuring as manifested in a spatial context. Relates spatial thinking to enumeration strategies. Interviews with 45 third graders and 78 fifth graders suggest that students initially see arrays of cubes as uncoordinated sets of faces, later as space-filling structures. (FDR)
