ab: Summary: This article describes a collaboration between a university
professor and a sixth-grade teacher who teamed to introduce algebra
using a visual approach. The project began with a study of qualitative
graphs, moved on to quantitative graphs, then introduced tables of
values and finally concentrated on equations. (Contains 12 figures.)
