Every once and a while I come across a resource that catches my eye. Today I discovered the New York Times’ What is Going on in This Graph? learning resource.
Here they offer different graphs and graphical representations for teachers and educators to use with their students. The graphs come with discussion questions and more detailed information on the graphs themselves and what they represent and how they represent it.
Aimed at younger audiences, it is still a useful tool for engaging students in the design, interpretation and use of graphs. It is aimed at a U.S. audience with U.S. demographics data but might serve as an ideas generator for making your own graphs with your country’s demographics.
