Conservation of Length and Instruction in Linear Measurement in Young Children.
Smith, Susan R.; And Others
Journal of Research in Science Teaching, v18 n1 p61-68 Jan 1981
Study investigated the relationship between children's (N=66) length conservation status and ability to acquire specific length measurement skills, and examined the interaction between mode of instruction (manipulative, graphic, and abstract) and conservation status. The expectation that length conservers would outperform nonconservers on manipulative measurement criteria was not supported. (Author/DS)
