Tinkerplots Version 2
Tinkerplots is a software construction set of basic operations (stack, order, separate) that allows students to build their own plots to analyze data. Tinkerplots is especially useful for mathematics teachers striving to teach students data analysis in line with recommendations of the NCTM’s Curriculum Standards, and to inquiry-based science classrooms where students collect and analyze data as part of formulating and testing their own hypotheses. It introduces a new way of making graphs – by using a construction set of graph pieces that students add one at a time to build what they want. Graphing has never been so easy and fun! Students can explore their graphs to identify common measures such as the mean, median, mode, and more. In addition, they can drag an outlier and watch these measures change dynamically! Its colorful, easy-to-learn interface encourages student activity. Data coloring helps students detect subtle relationships in their data. Students can create, import, or download data relevant to their classes, or investigate more than 40 data sets included with TinkerPlots. Using the construction set students can graph data in multiple waysincluding dot plots, map graphs, histograms, scatter plots, and box graphs. Students can highlight a case in one graph and see where it is in all the other graphs. They can add text and pictures, turning a TinkerPlots file into a colorful report.
