Abstract: 
Mathematics educators and mathematics standards of curriculum have emphasised the
importance of constructing the interconnectedness among mathematic concepts (“conceptual
understanding”) instead of only the ability to carry out standard procedures in an isolated
fashion. Researchers have attempted to assess the knowledge networks in students’ minds.
A technique that has gained popular use in science education over the past three decades is
concept mapping. This paper examines students’ conceptual understanding about triangle
concepts using concept maps, and an analysis of the maps using degree centralities derived
from social network analysis has demonstrated new insights through this novel technique.
