**Pros of this interactive graph:**- allows you to graph different types of graphs (bar, pie, area, line, and scatter plots)
- allows you to adjust the # of grid lines on the graph
- allows you to graph up to 6 sets of data on one graph
- allows you to color code each set of data
- allows you to plot up to 50 data items in each set of data
- allows you to vary the type of points on the graph (circle, square, rhombus, triangle, plus, or no shape)
- allows you to set min and max values for x- and y-axes
- allows you to Title Graph
- allows you to include a legend for the graph
- allows you to save the graph for editing at a later time
- allows you to print, download, and/or email the graph
- easy to use

**Cons of this interactive graph:**- does not allow you to scale the graph (I had to adjust my max values for the x- and y-axes in order to get it to scale the way I wanted it to.)
- does not allow you to graph equations (I was only able to graph points, not lines. I would like to be able to graph just equations, or to graph equations over data sets to see if they are linear.)

Here is the Fraction Families Graph I created using the NCES Kids' Zone Interactive Graphing Tool:
