On to graphing!

Graphs can help us see our world clearer.  They can take data and give it meaning.  That is, of course, if we use the right kind of graph!  Over the next two weeks, we'll be talking about visualizing data in many ways.  Alison Snieckus will start by talking about graphing data. She used to work for ETS, so her life has been an immersion in data! 

In preparation for next week, and in a not-too-subtle attempt at increasing connections within our MOOC , we're asking people to share their favorite visualization through Twitter, using #vizmath so that our friend gRSShopper can pick it up and share through our daily posts.  So, please do so!  Search for #vizmath first to get inspired.  Then, go for it!

In my hunt for some of my favorites, I came across this neat site that will do visualizations for you.  Check it out- it's called "Many Eyes."  And it's free!
