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.
