NCES Create a Graph

Sometimes creating a graph in excel is difficult for students especially younger grade levels. NCES Graph is a great way to present and create graphs for any age/user. Pick a picture of the graph you would like to make, type in any titles, numbers, or percentages you want to include and NCES Graph will take care of the rest. Then you can print the graph, email it, or download it as a pdf or an image. Great way to get the graphs your kids need without having to teach excel. To learn more click here.
