This engaging web site contains information and interactive applets related to various number systems: Egyptian, Babylonian, Chinese, Greek, Roman, Mayan, and Arabic. Users learn the history and structure of each system as well as how to count and write numbers. The site also allows users to explore finger systems, calculating machines, other number bases, and "interesting numbers." A series of pages on data and graphs includes information and activities on gathering, analyzing, graphing and sorting data. (Because the section on the Arabic number system is so extensive, it is cataloged separately as a related resource.)

In this activity from the Children's Museum of Houston, students explore how different spinners effect the probability of their results. Younger students will use this activity to collect data and graph their results, while older students will have deeper discussions about their predictions and theorectical vs experimental probabilty. Suggestions for extension activities, literature connections, and other web activites are included.

This lesson plan and video from PBS Mathline shows an interdisciplinary lesson in which students use scientific observations to create graphs and compare data. The lesson plan begins with students creating a bar graph, which then leads to a circle graph, and then a line plot. Discussions of observations from each representation are encouraged throughout the lesson. This resource includes a lesson plan, 2 worksheets, and a video commentary by the teachers.
