Measurement and Data
This two-day course focuses on the domain of Measurement and Data for students in grades K–5. The emphasis of this course is on developing understanding of the natural progressions in thinking that children pass through as they develop basic concepts of measurement. Experiences and discussions help participants understand the importance of providing students with many and varied measurement tasks. The tasks must be meaningful and require students to gather measurement data for a purpose or in connection with clarifying important ideas. Data investigations provide the opportunity to consider the components and skills involved with collecting, representing, and interpreting data.
