Online Graphics - Kids Zone (Graph 2)

I used the same process for this graph as I did for the first one.
I determined that the 4 states I would compare would be West Virginia, Utah, Arkansas, and Mississippi. Their Per Capita Income for 2006 were as followers.
WV 28,206
Utah 29,406
Mississippi 27.028
Arkansas 28, 473

They were all very close.
Then I search from google for the number of students on IEP in each state. I used the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES). The amount of students on IEPs were also very close, as my graph shows.

I used KidZone again to make this graph.

In the classroom:
Graphing can be used in every subject. There are endless possibilities for what your students could graph.
Also you can use graphs to relay information to parents, co-workers, administration etc.

c.promote student reflection using collaborative tools to reveal and clarify students' conceptual understanding and thinking, planning, and creative processes.

c.communicate relevant information and ideas effectively to students, parents, and peers using a variety of digital-age media and formats.
