# Developing Modules for Spatial Reasoning

Walter Whiteley is now leading a project to develop Modules for Spatial Reasoning in 3 faculties:

(i) Engineering - building from the resources at http://www.engageengineering.org/?page=26

(ii) First year Science Students;

(iii) Pre-service Teachers. A new course on Hands on Math has been approved by the Faculty of Education. Here is the course description.

There is strong support in the literature for three assertions:

- students and adults can improve their spatial reasoning abilities;

- this can have long term positive impact on retention in programs and on performance in programs;

- experience prior to university leaves many students with weak spatial reasoning abilities and low confidence with tasks that require spatial reasoning.
