Children's Understanding of Rectangular Solids Made of Small Cubes.
Olkun, Sinan; Knaupp, Jonathan E.
Finding the number of cubes in rectangular solids provides a cognitive framework for understanding the measurement of volume. This study reveals whether the activities provided in the context of equal investing and equal sharing that emphasize both numerical and spatial aspects of cube configurations cause any improvement in student strategies that lead them to use composite or iterable units in enumerating the cubes contained in rectangular buildings. This study also provides a review of literature and data collection methods. Contains 53 references. (ASK)
