Graphs: an introduction.


Our books grow with the student.

This book is an introduction to how scientists present their information with studies of the importance of understanding how the information is so presented.

It includes:

a) A historical experiment in updated form for the student and how to present the information for it in graphical form.

b) Historical background.

c) A lap book about graphs which uses normal sized paper.

d) 10 practice exercises on making graphs, 2 crossword puzzles, 3 examinations.

e) Discussion of the appropriate uses of the bar, line, exponential, sigmoid and other graphs as placed into the context of beginning, intermediate and advanced students.

f) Discussion of how people with "agendas" or "bias" can selectively show some parts of a graph to influence the viewer in a manner which is not consistent with what the graph really shows.

g) Discussion of the graphing of "data" and the "projection" of a graph into the future and the error associated with that projection.

This is a great unit study. The information is presented in a clear, easy to understand way, and the exercises are great for reinforcing each concept. We particularly enjoyed the pencil experiment. It gave my kids an opportunity to accumulate their own [...]

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
