### About the lecture

In this mini-lecture, we provide motivation for why studying graphs is useful and give an overview of what we will learn in this course. In particular, we consider: (i) a table of height versus age values; and (ii) the graph of these numbers, which helps us better understand the relationship between the two quantities (height and age).
