The purpose of this study was to investigate the nature of spatial ability and its relationship to the mathematical performance of primary school students. A review of the literature indicated that research results were inconclusive and even conflicting. The relationship varied with respect to the age and sex of the subjects. In order to help identify the nature of the relationship between spatial ability and mathematical performance, gender-related differences were included.
