Graphical Analysis for iPad®, iPhone®, and iPod touch®

Data Collection and Analysis for Science and STEM Education

Students use Graphical Analysis to wirelessly collect, analyze, and share sensor data in science and math classrooms. Graphical Analysis facilitates student understanding with real-time graphs of experimental data. Students enhance their work and lab reports with easy annotations, statistics, and curve fits.

Graph and Analyze Data from Vernier Sensors

Connect to Go Wireless Temp or NODE for wireless data collection. Use LabQuest 2 or a computer running Logger Pro as a Data Sharing source, connecting each member of a lab group while collecting data from any of over 80 compatible Vernier sensors.

Manual Data Entry

Graphical Analysis can also graph manually-entered data, with access to the same analysis and annotation tools used for sensor-based data collection.

1-to-1 Learning

Using Data Sharing, each student receives an individual copy of the data for analysis. Students annotate the data, perform curve fits, and make statistical calculations to build evidence of understanding. Learners tap, drag, pinch, and stretch to examine and analyze graphs in an immersive multi-touch environment.

Graphical Analysis automatically saves data and annotations within the app so students can view and analyze data after class or at home. Students can create a lab report or submit data to the teacher via email, camera roll, print function, and even third-party apps for notes and reports.
