For mathematics teachers and students, Graphing Stories is a collection of videos designed to introduce students to the concept of linear relationships and the skill of graphing. This collection was designed by veteran math teacher and blogger Dan Meyer (see the 01-06-2017 Scout Report) and Montreal-based organization Buzzmath. The concept behind this collection is simple: each video presents a relationship between a certain variable and time. For example, one video shows a man walking up the ladder to a slide, then going down a slide, and invites visitors to graph the man's "height of waist off ground" over time. Another video features a man blowing up a balloon to demonstrate the relationship of balloon length over time. This video collection is accompanied by printable graphs for students to use as they engage in the videos.
