Abstract: This paper shares findings from a post-intentional phenomenological study aimed at understanding learners' experience investigating space and dimension concepts in a fifth and sixth grade mathematics class. Findings indicate experiences in this study manifest as an ontological `trying-on' of geometric dimensions (e.g., through sight, perception, and motion), leading learners to conjecture about dimensional relationships. The paper discusses implications informing the second iteration of the design-based research project.
