The similarity between geometry and conceptual domains as spatial environments
Diezmann, Carmel M. (1996) The similarity between geometry and conceptual domains as spatial environments. In Zevenbergen, R. (Ed.) Mathematics Education Lecturers' Conference, July 1996, Melbourne.
This paper explores and extends upon Greeno's proposal that conceptual domains are spatial environments by considering the similarity between conceptual domains and geometry. However to account for the optimal outcome of learning, that is creative thought, the learner is considered as a developer of the environment rather than a navigator, as suggested by Greeno. Creative thought depends on spatial sense, which can be developed by geometric experiences. Hence by association geometric proficiency is implicated in the facilitation of creative thought.

Citation countsare sourced monthly fromand citation databases.
These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
Citations counts from theindexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
Full-text downloadsdisplays the total number of times this work’s files (e.g., a PDF) have been downloaded from QUT ePrints as well as the number of downloads in the previous 365 days. The count includes downloads for all files if a work has more than one.
