This paper reports the developmental phase of a 2-year longitudinal study of 120 Grade 2 children, which is designed to explore the relationship between their representations and understandings, of key number processes. The study focuses on the structure of children's representations of estimating, counting, grouping, re-grouping, partitioning and multiplicative processes. The research methodology, including videotaped interview tasks used during trialing in March and April 1996, and preliminary findings will be presented for discussion and critical analysis.
