Description:

This article reports results of portions of a study of children's concepts of length and perimeter measures. The study sought to characterize the mathematics of the children themselves, attempting to make sense of their strategies. One focus was finding out whether children regarded length as a discrete or a continuous measure. A second focus was on a rectangle's perimeter measure and its complexity in a student's mind.
