Integrating interactive graphing

Jump to solution

I teach economics and would love to be able to have graphing questions for Supply & Demand, Production Possibilities, and Foreign Exchange into my Economics course on Canvas. Is there something that will work without calculations/formulas, where the students would be able to follow a set of directions to move a curve, etc? 

Or even working with EconLowDown from the Federal Reserve as it has some awesome resources.

 @rmeyer3 , right now Canvas doesn't have this functionality. I found the following question about it from a while ago - https://community.canvaslms.com/message/80501-re-looking-for-app-to-plot-data-on-a-graph - and it contains information about what the original poster ended up doing.

Hope this helps! Kona

One of my higher ed economics instructors asked for this option also... I just found this and sent it to her to try it out.

or

Okay, my econ instructor already replied with this: 

"https://www.draw.io/  worked really well for creating demand and supply graphs" (I guess I had found it for her during the summer and already forgot)

I'm loving Bubbles!!!! (gapminder)  There is so much that I could integrate into learning modules on that site!" 

I also sent her this just because we were talking about tv shows/movies that can correlate into econ class. 

From the tv show Newsroom:

(has a middle-ish that I wish could be cut out with some language)

Towards the end of the tv show, Sloan was watching the Bloomberg Terminal and made a misrepresentation of the stocks but I can’t find a clip for it. It was showing stocks going down for a certain company and her perception of the trading was wrong. It was season three, episode four around 41:10 (available on amazon prime video).
