Subject: Re: Integrating numeration and graphs.
I think that the best way to incorporate numeration with graphing is by letting students use real data that they have collected. From finding the number of pockets in the classroom to the number of tires in the parking lot, children can record the data, graph the information, write a hypothesis, and make a prediction. All the while, they should be looking for number relations and patterns that help them to begin to think algebraically.
