AbstractThe aim of the research is defining the impact of using figure (vee) on developing geographical concepts for second intermediate school pupils in geography. The limits of the research were second intermediate school pupils in Al-Maisalon intermediate school for female pupils for the academic year 2012-2011. The researcher used the experimental design of two equivalent groups: experimental which used (vee) figure and Control group which used the traditional method. The sample Consisted of (52) pupils, (25) represented the experimental group and (27) represented the Control group. Equivalence between both groups was done in certain variables. Both groups were taught by their original teacher.
To achieve the aim of the research, a Concept test was prepared as well as drawing pad that will be used by the experimental group in practical lessons for the (vee) method (drawing the map). To verify their reliability, the two tools were presented to a panel of experts to know their surface validity. The test of geographical Concepts was done on a pilot sample to know the mechanism of its application on the real sample and extract its stability factor. The test eventually was done by a pre- and post –test after teaching the material. The results showed a statistically significant difference in favour of the experimental group. Given these results, the researcher gave some recommendations such as training in-service teachers of geography at intermediate and secondary school to use figure (vee) through Courses of Continuous teaching held by state administrate of Education.
