Mr. Nussbaum's Smart Poll Pie Chart
This tool allows students to conduct polls with their classmates, enter data, make a bar graph or pie chart, and then answer the interactive questions generated by the smart poll.

Plop It -Use your data to make dot plots  using your mouse. See how the mean, median, and mode change as entries are added to the plot.

Mr. Nussbarum's Interactive Bar Graph GeneratorA 
After a student submits data, a bar graph is created. The student must supply the data.

NCES Kids'Zone "Create A Graph" -Here you will be able to create five different charts and graphs. If you are not sure about which graph to use, there is a tutorial that can be used for practice. You must supply your own data.
http://nces.ed.gov/nceskids/createagraph/
NCES Kids'Zone "Create A Graph" Classic - This site is for those who haven't worked very much with Creating Graphs. It's more basic than the site listed above.
http://nces.ed.gov/nceskids/graphing/classic/
Stem and Leaf Plotter - At this site you can put in your own data and see a stem and leaf plot of the information.By using that information you can practice finding means, medians and modes. 
http://www.shodor.org/interactivate/activities/StemAndLeafPlotter/
Scatter Plot - Graph ordered pairs. Add your own graph title and axis labels. Points are connected from left to right, rather than being connected in the order they are entered.
http://www.shodor.org/interactivate/activities/ScatterPlot/
BBC: Maths: Handling Data- This site includes interactive materials on interpreting data, mean, median, mode, and probability. Quizzes and reviews are included. This site could be used with the promethean board and activ votes.

Quizville- Finding the Range of Data - In this interactive site, learners are asked to find the highest and lowest values of a set of numbers and then use the information to locate the range.
http://www.quizville.com/mathGames/brandNew/range.html
Quizville Interactive Graphing - This site includes interactive bar graphs, line graphs, finding averages, and much more.
http://www.quizville.com/mathGames/dataCollectionAndDisplay/index.html
Statistics Canada pdf. This site contains a pdf. document with information on:identifying points on a graph, plotting points on a graph, deciding on a scale, guidelines for graphs... It also contains resources for creating a variety of graphs.

 Creating a Graph in Power Point XP -This site contains "how to" information on creating graphs in power powerpoint presentations.
http://celt.cui.edu/CELT/PowerPoint/Graphs%20in%20PowerPoint%20XP.pdf
Data Analysis and Probability- This site contains opportunities for graphing practice for grades 3-5. (Worksheets)

Data Pick -ask questions, collect data, tally, then select a graph

KidsZone Bar Graph Lesson and Activity
http://nces.ed.gov/nceskids/createagraph/default.aspx?ID=6707d3db594244cd8b3ee1c11e3a68f7
What's the Point? Find the X - Y points on a grid (interactive)

Mean, Median, and Mode - Interactive lesson followed by activities and quiz.

Interactive Bar Graph
http://www.shodor.org/interactivate/activities/bargraph/?version=1.6.0_03&browser=MSIE&vendor=Sun_Microsystems_Inc.
Data Flyer - Enter a set of points then define a function to fit those points. Manipulate the function using slider bars. 
http://www.shodor.org/interactivate/activities/
Graph Sketcher - Create graphs of functions by entering formulas. This is like a graphing calculator.
http://www.shodor.org/interactivate/activities/GraphSketcher/
Graphit -Create graphs of functions and sets of ordered pairs on the same coordinate plane. This is like a graphing calculator with advanced options.
http://www.shodor.org/interactivate/activities/Graphit/
Linear Function Machine - Interact with linear functions by trying to guess the slope and intercept from inputs and outputs.
http://www.shodor.org/interactivate/activities/LinearFunctMachine/
Ordered Simple Plot -Plot ordered pairs on the graph, and they will be connected in the order that they are input. This enables you to decide how the pairs should be connected.
http://www.shodor.org/interactivate/activities/OrderedSimplePlot/
Possible or Not? -Review the properties of functions by looking at ten different curves and deciding whether or not they meet the criteria for the graph of a function. This activity just displays the curves.  It does not quiz the user.
http://www.shodor.org/interactivate/activities/PossibleOrNot/
Recursion - Graph recursive functions by defining f(0)=C and defining f(n) based on f(n-1).
http://www.shodor.org/interactivate/activities/Recursion/
Simple Maze Game - Investigate the first quardant of the Cartesian coordinate system by directing a robot through a mine field laid out on the grid.
.http://www.shodor.org/interactivate/activities/SimpleMazeGame/
Simple Plot - Plot ordered pairs of numbers, either as a scatter plot or with the dots connected. 
Slope Slider - Manipulate a linear function of the form f(x)=mx+b using slider bars. 
http://www.shodor.org/interactivate/activities/SlopeSlider/
Bar Graph Sorter - Sort colored shapes into a bar graph. Sort by shape or by color. (Elementary grades)
http://www.shodor.org/interactivate/activities/BarGraphSorter/
Measures - Enter data and view the mean, median, variance, and standard deviation of the data set. 
http://www.shodor.org/interactivate/activities/Measures/
Multi Bar Graph - Enter data to create a double bar graph.
http://www.shodor.org/interactivate/activities/MultiBarGraph/
Normal Distribution - Change the standard deviation to create a new histogram.
