As mathematics educators know, students need strong literacy skills to successfully solve story problems and read and interpret graphs. This interactive tutorial from the Annenberg Learner is designed to help math students develop these skills. In this short tutorial, students explore two short passages that describe driving at different speeds for differing lengths of time. As students read each passage, they complete an accompanying activity to graph the information from the passage in the form of a line graph. In the third activity, students are presented with a graph and are instructed to write their own story to accompany the information on the graph. This hands-on activity is designed for middle school-level students.
