The Relationship Between the Sequence of Graph Interpretation Skills and the Sequence of Mathematics Skills for Kindergarten Through Ninth Grade.
Appel, Ida J.
The purpose of the study was to determine in what sequence skills in graph interpretation should be presented in grades K-9. A sequential list of mathematics skills for grades K-9 was constructed, graph skills were identified and arranged in a sequential and spiral manner, then graph skills were matched with appropriate mathematics skills and concepts. A developmental program in graph reading and interpretation was devised to demonstrate the resulting sequence. The matched skills seemingly validated the hypothesis that graph skills may be taught in close coordination with mathematics skills so that in all grades the interpretation of graphs may be paced with children's grasp of related mathematics skills.
