Place-Value: Problem-Solving and Written Assessment Using Digit-Correspondence Tasks
Library Home || Full Table of Contents || Library Help
|This study examined the effects of researcher-developed lessons on students' understanding of two- and three-digit numeration. Digit-correspondence tasks, often used for individual interview assessment of place value understanding, were adapted to be used as problem-solving tasks. The tasks were presented to three classes, grades 3-5. Students were given ample opportunities, in cooperative groups and as a whole class, to discuss and exchange points of view.|
