Unable to simplify function output

I am trying to make a tool that creates a large number of rectangular boxes approximating a 3 dimensional graph. However when I enter in my function value as box height Sage says it is unable to simplify my height to a float approximation. I also do not what to display graph when the bounds are not real numbers. Does anyone know the solutions to my two problems.

 if lower_x_bound in RR or upper_x_bound in RR or lower_y_bound in RR or lower_y_bound in RR:
       #check if bounds are are real before graphing because I do nto know how to graph with   x as a bound.
        showGraph = True
        html("Can only grah numerical bounds")   
         showGraph = False

     if showGraph == True :
          graph = plot3d(function,(x,lower_x_bound,upper_x_bound),(y,lower_y_bound,upper_y_bound),fill=True,color = "orange",spin = 4)
          html("<h3>Graph of Integrated Region</h3>")
          delta = upper_x_bound - lower_x_bound

          #func= function(x = lower_x_bound+(i-1)*delta/numrecs , y = .2)

          B =  sum([Box([1/numrecs,.5,function(x = lower_x_bound+(i-1)*delta/numrecs , y = .2)], color="orange").translate((lower_x_bound+delta*i/numrecs,0,function(lower_x_bound+i*delta/numrecs)/2)) for i in [0..numrecs]])
          #makes a whole bunch of rectangels which approximate graph of function being integrated

This is the error I get when it tries to make the box heights.

I somtimes get a similar error when I use pylab or matplotlib. Usually it helps if I wrap all values or variables with predefined values as e.g. float(1.6) or float(lower_x_bound). Edit: Sorry, I meant numpy.float instead of float.
