Abstract

The purpose of this study is to investigate the connection between learning plans and elevations and visualization. This paper folding technique is used as a hands-on activity in order to help students in visualizing solid geometry. Modeling and investigation through paper folding is created so that students can observe, analyze and interprets the given three dimensional models and present them in two dimensional diagrams. Through this, it is hoped that students can develop skills such as spatial visualization, mathematical reasoning and mathematical connections. Through the Wilcoxon T-test it is noted that significant difference do exists between pretest and posttest scores. The paper folding method significantly improves the posttest scores.
