Spatial ability is an important skill that student need to have. Educators need to recognize that acquiring a range of spatial skills is important for all pupils or students; both for their educational or occupational success and for their everyday competence. Skills such as estimating, geometry, measurement, map-reading and simple drawing are some of the mathematics ideas behind this topic. Considering the importance of this aspect, the development of students’ spatial ability can no longer be… 
On Developing Students’ Spatial Visualisation Ability
TLDR
The results of this study show that the building blocks activity supports the development of students’ spatial visualisation ability.
Role of Immersive Virtual Reality in Fostering Creativity Among Architecture Students
Spatial reasoning is the a fundamental skill for in the profession of architecture. Space visualisation and it’s mental manipulation is required to conceptualise a design. An architect with better
Effects of using dynamic mathematics software on pre-service mathematics teachers spatial visualization skills: The case of spatial analytic geometry
The purpose of this study was to investigate the effects of using dynamic geometry software on pre-service mathematics teachers’ spatial visualization skills and to determine whether spatial
IMPROVING THE SPATIAL VISUALIZATION SKILLS OF FIRST YEAR ENGINEERING STUDENTS
TLDR
Strong improvements in visualization test scores has been observed from the first week through to the last week of the course, and to automate grading, the visualization tests have been implemented on WebCT.
Efficacy of Various Spatial Visualization Implementation Approaches in a First-year Engineering Projects Course
Spatial visualization (SV) skills are both learnable and linked to student success in engineering. Our work was motivated by previous research revealing a gender gap in SV skills that favors male
Textbook diagrams illustrating phases of the moon: Grade 10 learners' interpretation in relation to spatial ability
TLDR
The high spatial-ability learners were better able to cope with tasks requiring mental manipulation of the Earth-Moon-Sun system in space than their low spatial ability counterparts.

Abstract reasoning and Spatial Visualization in Formal Operational Stage
Formal operational stage differs from the previous stages due to the newly acquired ability to think in abstract terms and form hypotheses based on propositions (Inhelder & Piaget, 1958). As the
Development of mental rotation ability at primary school level
Although mental rotation ability has been researched broadly in cognitive psychology and neural studies, development of mental rotation and the effective method of training are rarely considered as
Graphical Communications : A Concept Inventory For Pre / Post Test Assessment
Engineering graphics is a fundamental skill required for students to be successful engineers; in the past, a year-long, two-course sequence was devoted to teaching engineering graphics. Today most

Abstract This case study discusses an activity that makes up one of five lessons in an ongoing classroom teaching experiment. The goal of the teaching experiment is (a) to gain insight into
Effects of Spatial Ability and Instructional Program on Geometry Achievement
The authors investigated the effects of student spatial ability, as measured by Raven's Progressive Colored Matrices (J. C. Raven, 1938) and type of instructional program on geometry achievement.
Preservice primary teachers’ three dimensional thinking skills☆
TLDR
The results indicated that preservice teachers encountered difficulties in naming rectangular prism-square prism and rectangular pyramid-rectangular prism as well as in drawing three-dimensional solid figures from their corresponding nets.

Abstract This paper investigates the relations of students’ spatial and object visualisation with their analytic, creative and practical abilities in three-dimensional geometry. Fifty-three
Spatial Ability: Introduction to the Special Issue
Spatial ability has to do with how individuals deal with materials presented in space or, more specifically, with a collection of abilities involving imagining, perceiving, remembering, and
Types of reasoning in 3D geometry thinking and their relation with spatial ability
The aim of this study is to describe and analyse the structure of 3D geometry thinking by identifying different types of reasoning and to examine their relation with spatial ability. To achieve this
Spatial Visualization in Physics Problem Solving
TLDR
Most low-spatial students did not combine two motion vectors, were unable to switch frames of reference, and tended to interpret graphs literally, which suggest an important relationship between spatial visualization ability and solving kinematics problems with multiple spatial parameters.
Spatial ability and its role in United Kingdom education
ABSTRACT Traditional concepts of education, which relegate practical abilities to minor significance, are considered to be inadequate. In particular, the traditional concepts underplay the
