Abstract : This study (1) explores the structure of knowledge and the relationship between a multidimensional knowledge space and the one-dimensional teaching space, (2) offers several hypotheses for transformations from the first space to the second, (3) demonstrates the results of different hypotheses using economics as subjectmatter, and (4) describes an experiment designed to see whether alternative subconcept sequences have a significant differential effect on learning.
