DescriptionIn the thirteenth of 18 clips from Early Algebra Ideas Involving Two Variables on the second of two consecutive classroom sessions with the class of 6th grade students, the researcher, Robert B. Davis, suggests that students who have figured out Problem 6 might share some of the "secret." There is general discussion and students appear unwilling to listen to each other. After Michele I. and Ankur present an explanation about how each "triangle" value is generated by multiplying the value in the "box" by itself, Michael responds by restating his earlier observation that the differences between "triangle" values are not constant as they had been in the earlier tables. Ankur, Michele I. and Michael are featured. Researchers Carolyn Maher, Alice Alston and Amy Martino are observing.
