The 14 Best Data Visualization Tools Nishith Sharma is the co-founder of frrole, a social intelligence startup. Raw data is boring and it’s difficult to make sense of it in its natural form. Add visualization to it and you get something that everybody can easily digest. All Killer, No Filler This one’s different, trust us. To make the tedious task of making beautiful charts and maps easier, I’ve made the list of best data visualization tools available for the job. Let’s get started! For Developers D3.js D3.js, short for ‘Data Driven Documents’, is the first name that comes to mind when we think of a Data Visualization Software. It doesn’t ship with pre-built charts out of the box, but has a nice gallery which showcases what’s possible with D3. FusionCharts FusionCharts has probably the most exhaustive collection of charts and maps. FusionCharts supports both JSON and XML data formats, and you can export charts in PNG, JPEG, SVG or PDF. Chart.js It uses HTML5 canvas element for rendering charts. Google Charts Highcharts Leaflet Raw

15 menő oktatójáték, hogy megtanulj programozni - Monsoon Info Blog Sokaknak nincs munkája vagy épp jobb munkát keresnek a jelenleginél, míg mások pályamódosításra kényszerülnek. De nemcsak nekik, hanem mindenkinek érdemes elgondolkodni a programozás – lassan általánossá váló képességének – elsajátításán. Egy próbát mindenképp megér, hiszen a technológia használata mellett akár létre is hozhatod azt. 15 olyan weboldal és app következik, ahol felnőttek és gyerekek is játszva tanulhatnak. „Ma már minden gyerek a gép előtt ül, előbb látnak táblagépet, mint a nagyszülőket, hamarabb tudják megnyitni a programokat, mint járnának. Több egyetem és néhány szülő is arra jutott, hogy Ideje ebből előnyt kovácsolni: miért ne tanulhatnának valamit játékosan, amivel később nagyon jól kereshetnek. Az angol sajnos alap, de ez talán hamar áthidalható” – írja az Index. A következőkben a legnépszerűbb, többségében ingyenes weboldalakat és alkalmazásokat mutatom be, amelyek gyerekeket és felnőtteket is észrevétlenül, addiktív módon tanítanak. Főleg, de nemcsak gyerekeknek:

Interactive angles teaching tool acute,obtuse,measure with protractor This activity allows manipulation and investigation of various types of angles. It can be used at a variety of different grade levels. At its most basic for teaching about types of angles, acute, obtuse or reflex. For more advanced use to create angle problems in which the missing letter angle values have to be found. You can click and drag the handles to change the angles and the values will updated. A built in protractor can be used to practice measuring angles. The controls The mode control is used to it selects the type of angle problem. In all the modes individual angles can be shown or hidden for example click the angle (a). The handles at the end of each line can be clicked and dragged to change the angle. Mode 'one' Identifying angle types. The initial mode is unique in that there is only one angle. Complementary Angles mode Supplementary Angles mode Supplementary angles are angles that add up to 180°. Angles at a point mode The angles at a point add up to 360°. Angles Glossary

Unsupported configuration - Microsoft MakeCode Cool Tools to Help Kids Learn to Code When your kid starts talking about loops, go-to commands, and branches, it probably means she's learning to code, and that's a very good thing. In a technology-fueled world, coding is quickly becoming a prized, 21st-century skill. Plus, it encourages kids to become creators, not just consumers, of the technology they use. Coding apps come in a range of formats designed for different ages and abilities. They often incorporate bright colors, cute characters, and elements of game design to appeal to kids. Whatever your kid's level, there's a tool that will get her behind the computer curtain to actually create content. Younger Kids The Foos: Code for an Hour FREE. 5+ Story-based coding game has kids play through increasingly challenging levels. Kodable Pro. 6+ Solid beginner game that introduces coding concepts and has lots of parent resources. ScratchJr. 6+ Kids drag and drop blocks of code, snap them together, and watch them work.

Art with Mrs. Nguyen: Radial Paper Relief Sculptures (4th/5th) For this lesson we began by taking about what symmetry is and the difference between linear symmetry (1 line of symmetry) and radial symmetry (more than 1 line of symmetry). Then we talked about what a sculpture is (a piece of artwork you can see from all sides - it is 3-dimensional) and what a relief "sculpture" is (a piece of artwork that has depth on the surface but is not meant to be seen from all sides). Once students understood the principles behind radial symmetry and sculpture we began creating our very own radial paper relief sculptures! Students started by folding a piece of 12"x12" black construction paper diagonally both ways and vertical and horizontally (to create an 'X' crease and a '+' crease). Making these creases makes creating a radial design SO much easier because it gives you guidelines to work with. Once their papers had been folded and their names written, we sat them aside. My kids absolutely LOVED this project!
