Adapted from: Figure of the Day v 1.0


By presenting graphs with all labels removed, Figure of the Day helps students engage in graph interpretation by turning it into a puzzle. Students use their number sense to make observations and come up with reasonable guesses or explanations for the patterns shown. Figure of the Day can also help students learn to enjoy the experience of tackling a very challenging (or even impossible!) problem by providing repeated daily practice.

Each figure is presented as a pair of slides, the first with all axis labels and legends removed, and the second as the original figure. Students are asked to make observations about the unlabeled version and guess what pattern is represented.
