A 3D Visualization Teaching-Learning Trajectory for by Jacqueline Sack, Irma Vazquez

By Jacqueline Sack, Irma Vazquez

This monograph describes the advance and use of a 3D visualization teaching-learning trajectory for straightforward age inexperienced persons. utilizing layout learn ideas, the authors built this trajectory utilizing the NCTM strategies and the Spatial Operational means (SOC) theoretical framework to steer lesson improvement. The SOC framework makes use of genuine 3D types, second and summary representations of the particular types, and, a dynamic desktop interface, the Geocadabra building field, which integrates those representations dynamically in genuine time. The paintings starts with describing the theoretical SOC frameworks that guided the examine, the inquiry-based studying concentration, the study procedure used, and casual pre-program interviews with player little ones. the following bankruptcy describes introductory actions used to orient the kids to the 3D items that they used during the application. The ebook then specializes in the advance of summary top-view numeric plan representations resulting in representations of oblong prisms, via front-side-top view representations. The final bankruptcy indicates how numeracy used to be built-in into this system to help the challenging reliable arithmetic curriculum.

This became the problem for that particular session. First, the children set about trying to build a cube from all seven Soma figures. We never emphasized this particular problem, since we always wanted that to be a self-determined problem choice that always remained interesting due to the large number of possible solutions.

Using these puzzle cards, the chil‐ dren were challenged to find more than one pair of Soma figures that replicated the figure on the printed card even though the card creator most likely used only one pair of Soma figures.
