Abstract:

Results of three experiments in training for solution of maneuvering board problems are reviewed. It is concluded that a training in understanding of relative motion is difficult under methods of classroom instruction thus far used b traditional, formula-bound training was inadequate when transfer of training criteria, involving basic understanding of relative motion, were used c a method, emphasizing conceptual model building, inferences, and approximate solutions, shows some promise but needs more development and evaluation. Some needed research is suggested. Author
