CRYSTAL{u2014}Alberta was established to research ways to improve students{u2019} understanding and reasoning in science and mathematics.

This volume, a comprehensive review of theory and research on the use of visualization in mathematics, science and reading, contrasts the two dominant theoretical paradigms of how people construct and interpret visualizations.
