Using Mental Imagery Processes for Teaching and Research in Mathematics and Computer Science
Arnoux, Pierre; Finkel, Alain
International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, v41 n2 p229-242 2010
The role of mental representations in mathematics and computer science (for teaching or research) is often downplayed or even completely ignored. Using an ongoing work on the subject, we argue for a more systematic study and use of mental representations, to get an intuition of mathematical concepts, and also to understand and build proofs. We give two detailed examples. (Contains 8 figures.)
