# How to let students enter axis labels

Beach Clark shared this question 2 years ago

I'm new to Geogebra. I'm working on an activity where students will create a simple line graph. Here is what I would like to have happen:

1. Students can add a title and label the axes (horizontal axis: “Time (t) in seconds”, vertical axis “Revolutions ( r )”).
2. The horizontal scale goes from ) to at least 150 (at least 120) and vertical scale to at least 100. Grid lines are labeled by 10s.
3. Students can add points and a line as in the original activity.

rightclick in the Graphics or click on Settings in the Style bar and you'll find all in the dialogues.In tab basic you can type min and max values, in the tabs x and y axis you can type labels and define distance to set the grid

Hi, thanks for responding to my question. I was able to find this dialog and most of what I was trying to do can be done using this. It's great to know that there is a community of people who are willing to help.

There is one thing I haven't been able to figure out yet. Is there a way to allow students to access this dialog in an activity? I want them to learn how to label axes.

Hi I tried right clicking and it worked. However, when I enter new values for the min and max for the y axis and hit the enter key, the new values I typed are more or less ignored. The values change, but not to the values I have entered. I can't figure out what's going on. I'm using a copy of an activity from Illustrated Math IM 7.2.10 Lesson: Introducing Graphs of Proportional Relationships

Please tell us which GeoGebra app you and your class are using, so we can give you more detailed info.

Hi Simona, I'm still a little new to GeoGebra, so I may get this response wrong. I'm using the web-based Geogebra. I think it's called Geogebra classic. Within that, I was using the geometry (is it called a perspective?).
