Summary: The present study has its objective in describing how students discover rules underlying a certain phenomenon at question and the process in which they mathematically justify such discovery by way of utilizing tables and graphs in use of the cell reference function of a spreadsheet when a problem is not easily solved through simple symbol manipulation in a paper and pencil environment.
