Visualizations of Statistics in Three Dimensions Using Virtual Reality
Data visualization has come a long way from tables and bar graphs to 3D animated graphics in Excel. The next step is to bring data into full 3D using VR (or AR/MR). DataViz(Vive/Rift),a free beta app allows users to take numbers and statistics and plot them in 3D axes, which they can easily manipulate. Users are then able to view the data from new angles, which in some cases may result in different patterns and trends being identified.
Calcflow, powered by Matryx on STEAM, lets students explore mathematical theorems and scenarios in an interactive virtual reality environment. Essentially it allows them to visualize mathematical concepts in a completely new way.
Teachers can bring real-world industry to their class this fall with the Amazon Cyber Robotics Challenge. By participating in this free three-hour virtual challenge, students experience the power of coding while uncovering how Amazon uses computer science and robotics daily to deliver customer orders.
VR Math, an interactive app from VR-AR Education for iOS and Android, helps educators teach and students understand 3D geometry, graphs, and vectors via virtual and augmented reality. The content is accessible using VR headsets or in 360-degree or AR mode on a touchscreen.
