Elementary School Journal, v98 n2 p171-86 Nov 1997
Studied the development of third graders' spatial thinking during an instructional unit on area and motion. Found strong positive effects on the transformation of internalized images. Found initial gender differences in spatial thinking, but both boys and girls made substantial gains during instruction. Students applied a unitizing operation to construct spatial and numerical units and "units of units." (Author/KB)
