Does Spatial Aptitude Influence Science-Math Subject Preferences of Children?
Lord, Thomas; Nicely, Gretchen
Journal of Elementary Science Education, v9 n2 p67-81 1997
Spatial aptitude tests designed for elementary school children were given to third-grade students from both suburban and rural schools in Pennsylvania. Results were scrutinized by the declared favorite subjects of the participants and organized by gender. Students who preferred science and mathematics did better on spatial tests than students who preferred subjects outside of science and mathematics. Contains 28 references. (Author/PVD)
