Description: 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.
