Tinkerplots is a software construction set of basic operations (stack, order, separate) that allows students to build their own plots to analyze data.
Students make graphs by using a construction set of graph pieces that students add one at a time to build what they want. 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. 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 ways including 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.
