New York Times Learning Network’s “What’s Going On in This Graph?” Returns for 2020-2021 School Year

The American Statistical Association (ASA) and The New York Times Learning Network released a new “What’s Going On in This Graph?” last week to mark the beginning of the academic year.  

Once a week from September to Maythis ongoing feature shares a graph from a recent New York Times article without any contextual information. This gives students the opportunity to apply their statistical knowledge and critical thinking skills to deduce key information and messages communicated in the graph.  

On Wednesday, September 16, ASA educators will facilitate a live discussioon this month’s featured post in the comment section with teachers and students from around the country from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. EST   

Check out the complete series here and join the discussion online.
