The Results of a Delayed Test in Descriptive Geometry
Nagy-Kondor, Rita
International Journal for Technology in Mathematics Education, v15 n3 p119-128 2008
We examined the recollections by first-year technical college students of concepts in Descriptive Geometry four months after they had studied the subject; furthermore, we compared the relative efficiency between group of students who had been helped in their studies by computer programs and those who had used the traditional paper-and-pencil methods. We carried out a delayed test on the first-year students to analyse their understanding of concepts in Descriptive Geometry. Based on the results obtained from this test, we would like to establish whether there is a significant difference between the group who worked using DGS and the other group who used only paper and pencil, moreover we would like to find out which concepts are the "weak spots" for students and if there is any need to strengthen the conceptual structure of Descriptive Geometry. (Contains 11 figures and 2 tables.)
