Spatial Perception Skills of Chemistry Students.
Coleman, Sharon L.; Gotch, Albert J.
Journal of Chemical Education, v75 n2 p206-09 Feb 1998
This study examined the cognitive development of students enrolled in three levels of freshman chemistry courses and focused on changes in spatial ability over time. Results indicate that performance on general Piagetian-type tasks, including spatial visualization, can be refined through educational intervention. Concludes that students appear less prepared in formal thought than comparable students in the 1980s. Contains 31 references. (PVD)
