Schemas and Mental Models In Geometry Problem Solving.
Chinnappan, Mohan
Educational Studies in Mathematics, v36 n3 p201-17 Sep 1998
Reports on a study that examined potential links between mental models constructed by students, the organizational quality of students' prior geometric knowledge, and the use of that knowledge during problem solving. Suggests that the quality of geometric knowledge that students develop could have a powerful effect on their mental models and subsequent use of that knowledge. Contains 28 references. (Author/ASK)
