Daniel C. Edelson, Matthew Brown, Douglas N. Gordin, Duane A. Griffin
The NSF-funded educational research project known as WorldWatcher is outlined. In this work, the authors have focused effort on recognizing the supports needed by learners to aid them in ...
Mental Rotation of Three-Dimensional Objects part of SERC Print Resource Collection
Robert Shepard, Jacqueline Metzler
This study shows that the time to recognize that two-dimensional perspective drawings portray a three-dimensional object increases linearly with the number of angular rotations required to portray ...
Effect of Type of Practice in a Computer Aided Design Environment in Visualizing Three-Dimensional Objects from Two-Dimensional Orthographic Projections part of SERC Print Resource Collection
R. Duesbury, H. O'Neil
This study to determine the effect of practice in manipulating two- and three-dimensional wireframe images on a learner's ability to visualize 3D objects shows that those who received practice ...
