Exploring students' Dynamic Measurement for Area

This project is a design study exploring a dynamic approach to teaching and learning measurement, which seems to be a promising approach to developing conceptual images of area and volume formulas. Dynamic measurement for Area (DYME-A) involves engaging students in dynamic experiences of visualizing the meaning of the area of a rectangle as a ‘sweep’ of a line segment of length a over a distance of b to produce area ab.
