Mental Geometry

One of the topics covered in some of our "gnu math"
classes is mental geometry i.e. building up an internal
model cram-packed with useful spatial relationships,
a toolbox or personal workspace if you will. Sort of
the right brain analog of "mental arithmetic" in the
left hemisphere (if you believe in such "brain talk"
-- take it as metaphoric if you like).
