PURPOSE OF THE INVESTIGATION. 1. To help first grade children develop the concept of measurement as comparison. 2. To guide them through experiences to see the relationship between various units of related aspects of measurement. 3. To help children recognize and use appropriate units of measure. 4. To understand the need for standard units through the use of non-standard units. SCOPE AND DELIMITATION OF THE PROBLEM AND ITS INVESTIGATION.
