Math Power Series™

Introduce Graphing and Data Analysis Concepts with this Interactive Tool

GraphPower provides teachers and parents with an educational tool for teaching data analysis and for developing skill in reading and interpreting graphs. Using GraphPower teachers will want to encourage students to build and analyze bar graphs, line graphs, circle graphs, and histograms. Active learning begins by entering the data for the graph, setting an appropriate scale, choosing colors and other featured in order to create a graph. Based on Common Core Standards, GraphPower gives kids the power to build and save graphs on their iPads. A complete curriculum provides teachers with lesson ideas and a variety of projects.

 Types of Graphs Label Options Statistical Topics: Bar Graphs Line Graphs Circle Graphs Histograms Graph Title Graph Subtitle y-axis Label x-axis Label scale Mean Median Mode Range Minimum Maximum

Fun Features: While using GraphPower students can scroll through a set of icons and then tap the icon to automatically set up a hypothetical graph. Next, tap the dice to generate random numbers for the graph and edit the graph with a titles and labels.

The GraphPower interactive learning environment is perfect for building skills and concepts related to data analysis. It is a useful classroom tool for core mathematics instruction and enrichment for teachers who want to strengthen graph reading and interpreting skills. While using this app students will do research and represent results of data collection appropriately in a bar graph, line graph, circle graph or histogram. The skills learned are relevant to the elementary mathematics curriculum. Encourage your students to use GraphPower to graphs to include in presentations for science or social science projects.

• Build graphs using data from surveys, as well as historical, political and scientific sources.
• Analyze and describe data presented in tables, or using bar graphs, line graphs, circle graphs and histograms.
• Learn statistical terms as mean, median, mode, minimum, maximum, and range.
• Summarize information and relationships revealed by a graph.
• Determine if a graph is appropriate for a particular situation.
• Add new data to a given chart, graph, or otherwise set of organized data.
• Extrapolate from obvious trends revealed by graphs in order to make predictions.

GraphPower provides simple interface to powerful tools to help kids learn how graphs are used for communication.Option to label the graph involve deciding on a title, subtitle, label for each axis. Tap icons to generate a graph. Younger learners will benefit from the optional auditory feedback that is provided as they manipulate the special graphing tools to design a graph.
