Journal of Science and Mathematics Education in Southeast Asia, v28 n1 p125-137 2005
Teachers tend to design worksheets to assist their students to develop their spatial skills. Many secondary schools students may not have sufficient concrete experiences to tackle abstract reasoning in geometrical concepts competently. In addition, students who are non-visual and spatial learners may have difficulties in learning geometrical topics. The aim of this study was to use the software, ProDesktop, to facilitate the teaching and learning of Plan and Elevation Geometry in a computer laboratory. A total of forty students from the Express stream of a neighborhood school in Singapore was selected to participate in the study. The results suggested that the use of ProDesktop had enhanced the learning of Plan and Elevation geometry both in terms of interest and proficiency of the topic. (Contains 6 figures and 1 table.)
