Office of Research and Development
The goal of this study is to find out the way how students form theconcept of volume and make successful measurements. We divide the profound significance of measurement into five levels (a) Indentifying.comparing, and ranking the attributes,(b) Using a convenient instrument toread accurately and record the data correctly, (c)Selecting a proper substitutive tool and choosing a suitable unit for a measurement task, (d)comprehending the meaning of unit and making equivalent conversions, and(e) Applying the relationship between the attributes and effective to ameasurement problem. The results of this study show that most of the first graders have alreadyreached level (a), the second and third grade students have reached levels (b)and (c) they can suggest one or two stratagies for solving measurementproblems. The fourth grade students have reached level (d). However, most students before the fourth grade failed when they faceda more flexible problem. In order to solve such a problem, they need theability of suggesting a clever method as well as a clear concept of all attributerelationships. This fact reveals that most of the students before grade fourare poor in these relative knowledge and are not ready to solve such king ofproblems.
