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...
