This is the portal to SmartGraphs, a project developed to promote learner understanding of graph functions through use of interactive digital graphing tools. The project goals are threefold: 1) Development of free digital graphing activities which are scaffolded to allow learner inputs, 2) Classroom testing of the graphing tools to document their effectiveness, and 3) Dissemination of free authoring tools for teachers to allow creation and sharing of new activities as open education resources. Each activity includes the interactive activity, lesson plan, and assessment with answer key.
This item is part of the Concord Consortium, a nonprofit research and development organization dedicated to transforming education through technology. The Concord Consortium develops deeply digital learning innovations for science, mathematics, and engineering. Please note that this resource requires Java. Editor's Note: SmartGraphs are appropriate for use in physical science courses from Grade 6-10, but can also be adapted for preparatory physics courses to assist in student remediation. Users must register to access full functionality of all the tools available with SmartGraphs, which include graph sketching, acquiring and sharing real-time data, creating databases for classroom record-keeping and assessment, and access to authoring tools. (Registration is free.)

Topic: Kinematics: The Physics of Motion
Unit Title: Special Collections This free collection will impress teachers in the way it promotes depth of understanding about graphs. Learners use interactive digital tools to predict how a motion graph will look, then they watch as the computer simulates process in real time. Next, they place inputs on the graphs and use language to explain what is happening. Finally, they compare their own predictions with the simulated process to analyze why the graphs appear as they do. As with all Concord Consortium materials, the resources are subjected to rigorous classroom testing to ensure their effectiveness. Link to Unit:
