Introduce Data Analysis Concepts with this Interactive Tool
 Hands-On Math Graph Cubes provides an interactive learning environment for developing skills and concepts related to data analysis. It is a perfect 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 conduct surveys of their classmates and represent the results of data collection in a bar graph that is assembled by stacking virtual cubes on a grid. The skills learned are relevant to the elementary mathematics curriculum. Encourage your students to try Hands-On Math Graph Cubes, and as they do you will see them get better at many basic math skills including the following: Analyze and describe data in terms of absolute or relative frequency of occurrence, range (highest/lowest), etc. Summarize information and relationships revealed by a graph Add new data to a given chart, graph, or set of organized data Extrapolate from obvious trends revealed by graphs in order to make predictions Graph Cube offers a variety of sticker collections which are used to label the graph. Colored cubes are used to create a vertical bar graph. Younger learners will benefit from the optional auditory feedback that is provided as they manipulate cubes and stickers.

Targeted Mathematical Development in the Following Areas:

 Data Analysis Constructing Surveys, Collecting Data, Representing Data in a Graph, Reading a Graph Accurately, Using Graphs and Tables to Answer Questions Number Sense Comparisions, (<, =, or >) Computation Addition and Subtraction of Whole Numbers Logic and Reasoning Solving Logical Problems Using the Scientific Method, Deductive Reasoning
