Graph literacy is the ability to identify important features of a wide variety of graphs and relate those features to the context of the graphs—in other words, to increase your understanding of graphs' meaning. According to the Common Core State Standards, English and language arts teachers, as well as math and science teachers share the responsibility for teaching students to understand graphs found in books, magazines, and newspapers, and on the web. By using the Graph Literacy activities middle school students investigate equivalent graphs, learn to interpolate values, discover the difference between dependent and independent variables and find linear trends on graphs and use these trends to find corresponding linear equations. This workshop will allow you to try out the graph literacy activities and see how they would fit in your school. Project materials are free and available online or through the Apple AppStore.
