EarthVision 2000: Examining Students' Representations of Complex Data Sets.
Vellom, R. Paul; Pape, Stephen J.
School Science and Mathematics, v100 n8 p426-39 Dec 2000
Examines pencil-and-paper graphs produced by students at the beginning of a 1-week summer teacher/student institute as well as computer-based graphs produced by those same students at the end of the institute. Initial problems with managing data sets and producing meaningful graphs disappeared quickly as students used the process of "building up" to handle the complexity of web-based data on water quality.
