Knowledge Extension and Geometry Problem Solving Performance.
Chinnappan, Mohan; Lawson, Michael
Hiroshima Journal of Mathematics Education, v4 p1-24 Mar 1996
Presents a framework for differentiating between five levels of extension of knowledge: basic features, forms, rules, application, and elaboration. Comparison of the extent of knowledge use exhibited by (n=14) Year-11 Australian students on a range of plane geometry problems found that high-achieving students exhibited greater extension of knowledge than low achievers at each level tested.
