  • Click Start. Choose a scale depending on the range of values you want to work with. Observe the values on the table. Drag the bars up to match the value and to complete the bar graph. You can type in the title or the amounts ONLY when you are not in full screen mode. When the scale is large (e.g., 100, 1000) or a decimal (e.g., 0.1 and 0.01), students may have to round the values. This a great estimation exercise!

Suggested Lessons or Activities:

  • This is really useful for teaching graphing. Use an Interactive Whiteboard to teach the whole class. Take the students to the computer lab and ask them to make 3 different graphs (different scales) and print them.

Special Features:

  • full screen (When typing you cannot be in full screen) but you can switch back and forth as you please).
  • 10 different scales to choose from (2 are decimals)
  • generate values within each scale for each bar graph (unlimited possibilities)
  • hide/show values (click eye button) if you want to assign the values yourself. Type in the values.
  • use the pen to annotate
  • guide line as you drag the bars for precision
  • colourful bars (changing each time you select a different scale for your graph)
  • Print option (Get out of full screen before printing, If you use Chrome you can save as PDF.)
