Measurement Session 10: Classroom Case Studies
 

In the previous sessions, we explored many different topics related to measurement. You put yourself in the position of a mathematics learner, both to analyze your individual approach to solving problems and to get some insights into your own understanding of measurement topics. It may have been difficult to separate your thinking as a mathematics learner from your thinking as a mathematics teacher. Not surprisingly, this is often the case! In this session, however, we will shift the focus to your own classroom and to the approaches your students might take with mathematical tasks involving measurement. Note 1
