New Studies in Education: A Study in the Psychology of Learning in Geometry


by Winona M. Perry - 1926

WHAT difficulties will students experience when they attempt to solve geometry "originals"?1 Is it possible to construct, on the basis of student difficulties, a technique whereby students may learn how to attack exercises in geometry successfully as well as to detect errors in their solutions? What would be the effect of continued practice based upon this technique in the solutions of such exercises? Would this effect be equally profitable for superior, average, and below average students? Furthermore, would the students who used such a technique in the solution of exercises in geometry improve in their ability to solve problems non-mathematical in character? These questions form the core of the present study.
