Chapter 3: Scatter Plots

The kids picked to create a scatter plot and we discussed the use of scatter plots to understand data quickly and meaningfully (and covered some formatting and annotations)

Mar 25, 2020

We started our exploration today with data about cereals and picking a type of chart that we wanted to create. Line graphs seemed the obvious choice until we realize that our dataset has no date component. We discussed scatter plots as the chart we will create (my fav type of chart) and made a few observations about what cereals we would recommend based on the data. Formatting and annotation found their way into our discussion as well. I, personally, loved some of the things that my daughters notice that I sometimes miss because I am so focused on the next step. The exploration with my daughters is giving me a completely new sense of wonder. Hope you enjoy this one
