DescriptionIn the final clip of the series of 18 for Early Algebra Ideas Involving Two Variables with the class of 6th grade students, researcher Robert B. Davis presents the table for problem 10 (see below) as a challenge for the group to consider for future sessions. The students begin to analyze the number patterns in the table. Brian, Romina, Ankur and Michele I. report the pattern of differences in the "triangle" column to Davis. The class session concludes with a final discussion about the value of keeping, as well as sharing, secrets when solving challenging mathematical problems with others. Researchers Carolyn Maher, Alice Alston and Amy Martino and the district supervisor, Marcia O'Brien, are observing.
