Example text

The pupils first learn the prefixes in the context of units of length. The graduated ruler, which the pupils know as a measurement instrument for length, gives meaning to the prefixes ‘centi’ and ‘milli’. The graduated ruler can then help to make them aware of the meanings of these prefixes. There are 100 centimeters in one meter. One centimeter is therefore one-hundredth of a meter. Soon there is attention for units of length, such as kilometer, that do not fall within the units on the graduated ruler.

Obviously, transformation is not the only productive approach. For example, many children quickly see that the triangle is exactly half the area of the underlying rectangle. The parallelogram is created by removing eight tiles from the underlying rectangle, and with the trapezoid six tiles must be left out. 17 shows how. Flexible counting approaches to determine area also work with irregular figures. The strategy is then to repeatedly cut up the figure or its comple36 ment in such a way that whole tiles or other sub-figures are created for which the area can be easily determined.

It is possible to think of various reasons for this: - You do not have to calculate with fractions, and you calculate in almost the same way as with whole numbers. - You can use the same prefixes for many different magnitudes. - In principle, you can continue to make the unit smaller and smaller, and in this way choose a suitable level of precision. At the same time that they explored the usefulness of the millimeter, the pupils have also become thoroughly familiar with the relationship between centimeters and millimeters.
