Dr. Grafoo

Description

As many educators recognize, an essential part of the math curriculum is to have their students efficiently represent key data through pictograms, block graphs and bar charts. With our latest interactive math game, Dr. Grafoo, teachers can easily use real-life information to help students convey vital facts with visually engaging graphs and charts that make the meaning of data clear and comprehensible. Also, it is already aligned with the K-3 Measurement and Data (MD) category of the state standards for mathematics!

Goal (description)

While playing, students can become more familiar and practice how to turn table representations of data and tallies into a bar graph, pictogram or line plot and analyze results. Data and other relevant information come from simple everyday items that children should be able to understand such as cereal boxes, fruits, beads and more. As a result, the student can then successfully input these items into fun graph displays.
