“Tuva allows for higher-order thinking by eliminating the mechanical processes of physically creating and organizing graphs, which is difficult for students who are behind or have difficulty with mathematics.  Students can easily manipulate data, variables, and graphs in a drag-and-drop environment that is both familiar and easy to understand. They discover patterns and trends in data that are meaningful to them. It is incredibly cross-curricular and works very well in mixed-ability and mixed-grade-level classrooms, like mine. Tuva is the next evolution of the graphical expression of data in education.”
