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
Ok, you had a great time at TC19 and you just can’t stop raving about it with your co-workers and they watch to watch some of that goodness. Looks like, you also missed some sessions because there was too much goodness happening at the same time.
Back home, ready to watch, but not sure where to start?
I would minimize the number of sheets in each dashboard and ideally keep it to less than 5
Not sure how much more I can add, other than the fact that most of my dashboards are with sheets between 5 and 10. Having had many engagements providing the insipiration for these dashboards, I think my rule of thumb works pretty well
