Math Monday - Spotting Intervals

Welcome and thank you for stopping by Math Monday, 
I hope you will consider joining the conversation.

It's summer time for me and Math Mondays might be light hearted at time, which seems very appropriate since it's summer!  As I worked in the yard this weekend, I noticed my favorite reading spot has intervals.  My first reaction was there were intervals on the back and the seat.  Then I realized the top half of my chairs are tricky because the width at the top of each board increases a smidge in size, which makes the intervals inconsistent in size.  Which leads me to a question and or a misconception I think students could have.  Do intervals vary in size? or Intervals can be of different sizes.  The bottom is consistent in size and a great interval example.

As you see intervals this summer remember to join #intervalchat on twitter.
