About this Laboratory

In the following laboratory you will learn how to solve problems
graphically. Then you will compare the graphic solutions to a table of values
and also to an algebraic model. You will use communication skills and the rule
of three (NAG). By making connections among Numbers in tables, Algebraic analysis,
and Graphs you are using a type of mathematical reasoning. By working independently
with your partner you are discovering these connections and thereby constructing
your own knowledge about mathematics. A teacher who facilitates students' construction
of their own knowledge is sometimes known as a constructivist.
