Fathom Dynamic Data Software

Fathom is dynamic software that’s fun and effective for teaching data analysis and statistics. It’s also a powerful tool for high school students to use for modeling with mathematics, as required by the Common Core State Standards. In addition to helping students understand algebra, precalculus and statistics, Fathom’s powerful data analysis capabilities make it an excellent tool for the physical and biological sciences, as well as for social science courses.

We are transitioning away from Fathom and are no longer issuing new licenses. We recommend using CODAP —a free, browser-based platform that offers similar data analysis capabilities. Stay tuned for more updates and thank you for your patience during this transition.

Data analysis and modeling are now integral components of high school courses and the Common Core State Standards. Fathom provides a dynamic, visually compelling environment for students to meet these standards as they explore, analyze and model data. Here are a few of the specific standards that can be taught using Fathom and our free activities or activity modules:

  • Standard S.IC.1

    Understand and evaluate random processes underlying statistical experiments

  • Standard S.IC.3
