What’s Going On In This Graph?

ASA and The New York Times Learning Network released a brand new “What’s Going On In This Graph?” this morning.

Each month of the academic year (September to May), this ongoing feature shares a graph from a recent New York Times article, but stripped of its contextual information. Then it’s up to you to use your math, statistics and critical thinking to deduce what’s going on in the graph. (Teachers, share with your class for a great discussion.)

A new “What’s Going On In This Graph?” releases the second Tuesday of each month. On the day of a new release, ASA facilitates a discussion through the comments section from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. ET.

Check out the latest feature here.
