Seeing reason is an online tool (1) for mapping cause-and-effect relationships, (2) to help students analyze complex systems and (3) to communicate understanding visually and promote collaborative work. Analyzing cause-and-effect relationships is important in understanding complex systems such as traffic patterns or destruction of animal habitat. The Seeing Reason resource promotes cause-and-effect thinking through visual mapping. Students create visual representations of the factors and relationships in a cause-and-effect investigation. These maps making thinking visible and promote collaborative refinement of understanding. At the heart of Seeing Reason is an interactive mapping tool that helps students map relationships and construct models of their understanding.
