Abstract

A study of how students attempt three-dimensional problems presented as diagrams illustrates the range of thinking used by middle primary school students. The study involved giving items to 265 students and interviewing six additional students. The spatial ability of reseeing assists students to notice properties of shapes held in their imagery. The verbalized knowledge associated with noticing aspects of their imagery and changes in shape and orientation are developing prior to a consistent description of the three-dimensional shapes. This finding has implications for teachers.
