To be numerate in contemporary society, all individuals need to make sense of the graphical aspects of mathematics. Various graphics are used as a means of communication of mathematical ideas and also as tools for thinking about these ideas. This paper describes the different types of graphics(e.g., maps, charts, number lines, graphs)used in primary mathematics and suggests ways teachers can develop students’ability to interpret them.
