About CODAP Sliders

A slider is a named value, or a parameter, that you can use in any formula in your document. A change you make to the slider is immediately reflected by all the parts of your document that depend on that slider.

You might use a slider named proportion in a formula for an attribute named Votes so that changing the slider value would change the proportion of randomly generated “yes” votes in the collection of voters. Or you might use a slider named Coefficient in a function you plot on a graph.

  1. Create a slider by pressing the Slider button.
  2. Type a name for the slider.
  3. Use the slider’s name in the formula that you want to make dynamic.
  4. Change the slider’s value by dragging the thumb above the axis, clicking the slider’s animation button, or editing the existing value by typing.
