Abstract

Tasks involving measure concepts such as length, capacity and volume provide rich opportunity for learning number, and some curricula have been developed with measure as the foundational context for all early number learning (e.g. Davydov and Elknonin in Russia and the Measure Up project in Hawaii). In this presentation, I will outline phase 1 of a design-based research thesis which aims to explore the learning of the multiplicative relationship through measures with learners in Wales, where learners have not learnt learned number through measuring contexts previously. In particular, I will consider the methods used to try to measure the extent to which measuring tasks (and the way in which they were implemented), afforded opportunity for learning the multiplicative relationship with a group of Year 2 learners
