Making "Photo" Graphs
Doto, Julianne; Golbeck, Susan
Science and Children, v45 n2 p33-35 Oct 2007
Collecting data and analyzing the results of experiments is difficult for children. The authors found a surprising way to help their third graders make graphs and draw conclusions from their data: digital photographs. The pictures bridged the gap between an abstract graph and the plants it represented. With the support of the photos, students analyzed the results of their experiment and represented them graphically. In addition, children learned about plants according to state science standards while integrating the data analysis components of state math standards. (Contains 2 figures.)
