The starting point is a concrete request: the school needs a new table. Teachers propose the children take care of it: what to do? This book recounts first approaches to the discovery, function and use of measurement.
Children have access to mathematical thinking through operations of orientation, play, and their choices of relational and descriptive languages. From a project in the Diana Preschool, with texts by Loris Malaguzzi.
