This section introduces graphing and gives an example of how we intuitively use it.

Like algebra graphing is often taught as some mechanical process without context or reason; instead you are told that there is some plane and graphing is comprised of counting over a certain number and up or down a certain number to place points. This approach makes it difficult for students to garner much intuition about geometric reasoning, and is especially baffling when one considers that graphing is arguably one of the most natural of the mathematical processes.
