    Abstract

    The paper describes the study to introduce the position of numbers to pupils in grade 2 in Indonesia (7-8 years old). We aim to make the pupils acquaint that the certain position on the closed number line represent a certain number. Design research was used as the approach for achieving this aim. A series of number line activities based on PMRI approach was used to encourage the pupils to consider the position of the number relative to other numbers. We used the closed number line, start with 0 and end with 100, in this study. ‘Guess my number’ game was also used to promote the idea of the position of numbers. Keywords : number position, number line, magnitude of numbers, design research, number sense
