A task about a cube; or, on generalization in 3D
Treść / Zawartość
The necessity of teaching such an activity as generalization was considered by Z. Krygowska in the ‘70s (Krygowska, 1977). The formation of this ability requires an adequate selection of non-stereotypical tasks, for which the algorithm is unknown to the person solving the task, ones in which a student is forced to search for their own method of solving the task on the basis of their knowledge. In literature, there are known studies concerning the process of generalization of students of different ages which use, at most, 2D visual patterns. However, the author still did not find any research based on tasks which examine the process of generalization in 3D. In this paper, results will be shown of using a task concerning a cube carried out in a diverse group of students from middle school, high school, and university.
