Other Examples:

  • Children may at first see only the individuals in a data display (“That’s me. I’m turning six this year”). They do not “pull the pieces together” to think about the data as a whole.

  • A child points at a graph showing favorite color frequencies of classmates and remembers "We talked about colors."
