Central Iowa Low Achiever Mathematics Project - Measurement.
Nibbelink, William H.
Developed in these materials is a concept of measurement. The unit begins with a fictitious system of measurement from which basic ideas about measurement are to be retained and later applied to other systems of measurement. It is hypothesized that it is easier for the student to abstract principles from a less tangible and unfamiliar system than from an endless sequence of systems. The initial contact with measurement is also made more exciting and entertaining than can be accomplished by a discourse on yards, feet, and inches. Several parts of this unit are conventional in approach. This work was prepared under ESEA Title III contract. (RP)
