DescriptionIn the eleventh 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, several of the students share their preliminary ideas with the researcher, Robert B. Davis, about the table for Problem 6, as printed below. After Ankur and Michele I. describe the function verbally, Davis asks them to write a symbolic equation to describe the relationship. Romina and Brian share ideas about patterns that they see among the values in the table. Researchers Carolyn Maher, Alice Alston and Amy Martino are observing.
