The impetus for the ENRP was a desire to improve children's mathematics learning.
Four growth points from the ENRP form the basis of the data presented below.
The first of the ENRP growth points relevant for the discussion is:
The second of the ENRP growth points relevant for the discussion is:
The third of the ENRP growth points relevant for the discussion is:
Again, it was possible from the ENRP data to seek insights into the characteristics of the students who did not improve in the quantifying length task that involved unit iteration by comparing their performance in other domains.
The intention of this paper is to explore length understandings in light of experiences from the Early Numeracy Research Project (ENRP) and reflect upon the value of the fundamental ideas underpinning the learning of length in the early years of schooling.
It is relevant to note that in the ENRP an active decision was made not to have assessment items that measure the transitive property of length; nevertheless, structured activities that provide experiences in this element of length learning are important (e.g.
