Graphs In The News Foldable

I made this practice problem insert for my statistics students to use to practice analyzing graphs of categorical data.  I pulled some real-life data displays from the internet.  Then, I had students discuss these questions together as a group.  I loved hearing the students reason through these!  I took the question prompts from Stats: Modeling the World.  The original assignment was to find an example of each graph on their own and answer the questions.  I decided to just go ahead and pick out some graphs for them to use.    

They thought it was cool to be able to find flaws in graphs created by real-life professionals.

  1. I love this. This is great. I'm starting to realize that the best teacher resources are resources that teachers create themselves. I think it's awesome that you brought real-life data into the classroom and had students interact with it.

    KUDOS to you!
