On question 1, entire books have been written on exploring cognitive developement and misunderstanding of math: numbers, quantity, zero, etc. Many PhD candidates have explored this in dissertations. It cannot be addressed in a few sentences. Process errors in mensuration are commonly reading and thinking errors, and center on the difficulty of concepts of precision and accuracy. Early learners are counters, not measurers. Again, much as been written on this, it is a cognitive difficulty. Until the cognitive processes are developed, mensuration is not understood. Many chemistry students I have had did not understand precision, accuracy, nor error because of their thinking processes did not allow it then.
There is much research to be done here, many areas are not understood
