Eight Free tools for Teachers to Make Awesome Infographics

Eight Free tools for Teachers to Make Awesome Infographics | Lisa's Teacher Resources | Scoop.it

Information graphics which are the visual representation of data known as infogographics are making rounds online these days. It seems like web users are favouring this form of content format over other forms. Their visually attractive display, the bright and shiny colours they include are what make out of them an appealing means of communication. I personally like them because I find them factually interesting, to the point, and easy on eyes.

Curriki - What Does the Normal Distribution Sound Like

Curriki - What Does the Normal Distribution Sound Like | Lisa's Teacher Resources | Scoop.it

In this activity, students conduct an investigation to determine the rate of change in the popping of microwave popcorn. Four volunteers will estimate the time in the popping process where the rate of change is at 5 chosen levels. Other students will collect data on number of pops during consecutive 5 second time periods and draw histograms. Students will understand the approximate normal curve for a real data set and the relationship between the rate of popping and the shape of the distribution. This activity also provides an opportunity for students to understand human errors in data collection because not everyone will have the same number of frequencies in the corresponding classes of their histograms.
