InspireData^{®}'s multiple plot views give students many ways to investigate, analyse, and represent data and information, so they visualise data for science, mathematics, and humanities projects and assignments. Use these examples and resources to help you start using InspireData easily and effectively.

Science

In every step of scientific inquiry, students will benefit from InspireData. The dynamic nature of the tables and graphs gives students opportunities to test hypotheses, analyse data, draw conclusions and report results.

Students and teachers collect data from lab experiments, the Internet, e-Surveys or use one of InspireData’s pre-collected science databases. As they create multiple plot types, students explore the best ways to investigate and represent their information. They can animate data in time series, compare data with Venn diagrams and create bar, stack, axis and pie charts. Students record their observations and report their results using the Notes and Slide Show features.

Maths

Maths students use InspireData to understand, represent, interpret and compare data in tables and graphs. This builds essential understanding of core concepts including percent, measures of center, experimental and theoretical probability, algebraic relationships, correlation and line of best fit.

Students and teachers use data from e-Surveys, the Internet, or the ready-to-use mathematics databases. They can represent data in multiple plot forms, including line charts, bar charts, pictographs, histograms, line graphs, scatter plots, box plots, pie charts and Venn diagrams. With InspireData, it’s easy to display graphical solutions and record observations using the Notes and Slide Show tools.

Humanities

In humanities, students use InspireData to understand patterns and relationships. Dynamic tables and graphs give students a visual way to analyse statistics, illustrate data sets and identify historical and economic [quantitative] trends.

Students and teachers collect data from e-Surveys, library and Internet research, or one of the ready-to-use InspireData social studies databases. Students explore the best ways to represent and analyse their data by experimenting with multiple plot types. They can animate data in time series, compare data using Venn diagrams or create bar, stack, axis and pie charts. Students strengthen research skills by recording their observations and analyses using the Notes and Slide Show tools.

Educator Analysis

InspireData offers educators a useful tool to support data-driven decision making. Educators are presented with data about students, staff and assessments. InspireData offers a unique way to easily collect and analyse this data to draw meaningful conclusions and make informed decisions.

With expanded educator support, InspireData offers tools to help educators perform their own data analysis, including:

- Examples to help educators track and analyse classroom and school data.

- InspireData's e-Survey tool can be used to collect and analyse parent or student information.
