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

(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.
