Teaching Teachers about Measurement: A Varied Approach
Otten, Samuel; Corcoran, Edward A.
PRIMUS, v21 n4 p316-322 2011
This article introduces a mathematical entity, the varimeter, that can be used to engage future mathematics teachers in reflection about the structure of measurement systems, thus aiding in the development of insight and understanding which may be beneficial to the future teachers when they work with their own students on measurement. Furthermore, the varimeter can provide a context for authentic mathematical experience. (Contains 3 figures.)
