Graphing stories

The ‘Graphing Stories’ collection is a collaborative project run by Dan Mayer and the ‘BuzzMath’ team. Each story comprises a video that shows a practical situation where a measure, such as height or weight, varies with time. The situation is then replayed at a slower rate to help enable the viewer to assess more clearly how the measurement varies and to then plot a graph of the story.

For each story there are sets of pre-prepared axes. The task is to draw a graph of the story. The initial scene in each video shows the scale to be used on the y-axis. The scale on the x-axis is always 15 units per division.

Each ‘story’ concludes with the answer being shown. This takes the format of a graph being superimposed over the video of the situation, with the graph being drawn in real time as the action takes place.  

Resources

Linear graphs

This sub-collection of resources from the ‘Graphing Stories’ collection contains situations that give rise to linear graphs. Some of the graphs contain proportional relationships, whist others show just linear relationships.

Non-linear graphs

This sub-collection of resources from the ‘Graphing Stories’ collection contains situations that give rise to non-linear graphs. Additionally, some of the situations result in parabolas or graphs that are periodic.
