Summary
Teachers enable students to learn geometry more easily by using graphical illustrations. This is because the illustrations provide students with an intuitive understanding of geometric concepts, which makes it easier to manipulate symbols. Graphically illustrating algebraic concepts would be equally effective, even though the deepest mathematical understanding is abstract.
Strongly Supported Conclusions
This is an “except” question and any strongly supported conclusion would be an incorrect answer. We’re looking for an answer that is unsupported or least supported. Some strongly supported conclusions could be:
Imagistic understanding is not the deepest level of mathematical understanding.
Some teaching strategies can be used to teach students both geometric and algebraic concepts.
Graphically illustrating geometric concepts is an effective teaching strategy.
Imagistic understanding is not the deepest level of mathematical understanding.
Some teaching strategies can be used to teach students both geometric and algebraic concepts.
Graphically illustrating geometric concepts is an effective teaching strategy.
A
Pictorial understanding is not the final stage of mathematical understanding.
This answer is strongly supported. We know from the stimulus that the deepest level, and therefore final stage, of mathematical understanding is abstract.
B
People who are very good at manipulating symbols do not necessarily have any mathematical understanding.
This answer is unsupported. We know from the stimulus that there are some people who are both good at manipulating symbols and have mathematical understanding. We don’t know if there are some people good at manipulating symbols but don’t have mathematical understanding.
C
Illustrating geometric concepts graphically is an effective teaching method.
This answer is strongly supported. We know that graphically illustrating these concepts is an effective teaching method from the first sentence.
D
Acquiring the ability to manipulate symbols is part of the process of learning geometry.
This answer is strongly supported. We know that this process is involved in learning geometry from the first sentence.
E
There are strategies that can be effectively employed in the teaching both of algebra and of geometry.
This answer is strongly supported. We know this because the stimulus tells us that using graphic illustrations would be “equally effective” for teaching algebraic concepts.
