Planning Aid
Scale Skills - Ammeter
Graph Plotting
A useful visual prompt/aid for investigation. Key variables are selected along with the dependant variable. Basic modelling allows positive and negative correlations to be selected to allow a prediction to be decided upon. The key variable is selected and the tables and graph set up is automatically determined. The aid shows an ammeter with a series of shunt/socket options. The needle can be dragged to any point so that students can learn how to read standard analogue ammeters.

A drag and drop graph plotting program. The scale can be set, the axes labelled and then points dragged onto the graph. Lines (or curves) of best fit may then be manually applied. This is an interactive aid to teach graph plotting skills.
