Young Children's Understandings of Length Measurement: Evaluating a Learning Trajectory
Szilagyi, Janka; Clements, Douglas H.; Sarama, Julie
Journal for Research in Mathematics Education, v44 n3 p581-620 May 2013
This study investigated the development of length measurement ideas in students from prekindergarten through 2nd grade. The main purpose was to evaluate and elaborate the developmental progression, or levels of thinking, of a hypothesized learning trajectory for length measurement to ensure that the sequence of levels of thinking is consistent with observed behaviors of most young children.
