|A review of the literature and of several efforts to teach graph interpretation using various forms of technology. Line graphs showing the value of a variable over a period of time are used extensively in mathematics and the sciences. Students often misinterpret these graphs, which impedes their learning. Two common misinterpretations that have been identified in the literature are examined in this paper. With references.|
