During the specification of mathematizing and reflective goals in Chapter  2, the development of the mathematizing concept of measure emerged as a mathematizing goal of mathematical literacy in statistics. It was also proposed that this concept is in need of a thorough conceptualization, so that the learning content of a corresponding teaching-learning arrangement can be specified. This chapter argues that the mathematizing concept of measure is indeed in need of a conceptualization (Section 3.1.1), and then proposes such (Section 3.1.2). The conceptualization provides a framework that allows to further specify learning goals as well as to describe the starting points of learners’ reasoning (Section 3.2).
