What’s Going On In This Graph

This is Statistics is excited to share the latest “What’s Going On In This Graph?” feature from the New York Times Learning Network.

Each month of the academic year, the Learning Network shares an infographic, stripped of its contextual information, from a recent New York Times article. It’s up to you to use your math, statistics and critical thinking skills to answer questions about what you see.

Teachers, these data visualization exercises are a great way to incorporate statistics in the classroom, even outside of math or statistics classes. Statistical literacy is important for everyone and this is a useful tool for teaching students how to read, interpret and question graphs.

New graphs are released on the second Tuesday of each month. ASA also hosts a discussion through the comments section from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. ET the day of the release. Click here to see the latest graph.
