Explanation of the tool

When you first open the tool, check the "Settings" to choose the difficulty level and whether numbers will be displayed on the axis. Press "save settings" to start using the tool!

You'll now see the image that the students need to replicate on the left-hand side of the screen. If you want them to work with a different example, press the "blue arrows" on either side of the image. Now the student will select what color blocks they want to use first from the options under the example image. Once the correct color is chosen, they can click the corresponding squares on the blank graph on the right to try and perfectly match the chosen example. To check their work, they can click the "Check" button at the bottom of the screen. Click "clear all" to start from scratch!
