Students must be able to correctly interpret math graphics in order to correctly answer many applied math problems. Struggling learners in math often misread or misinterpret math graphics. Teachers need an instructional strategy to encourage students to be more savvy interpreters of graphics in applied math problems.

The focus of this issue of The Practical Teacher will be to explain how to use question-answer relationships (QARs) to Interpret Math graphics
