Interpret secondary data presented in digital media and elsewhere

Elaborations

  • investigating data representations in the media and discussing what they illustrate and the messages the people who created them might want to convey (Skills: Literacy, Numeracy, Critical and Creative Thinking, Ethical Understanding)
  • identifying potentially misleading data representations in the media, such as graphs with broken axes or non-linear scales, graphics not drawn to scale, data not related to the population about which the claims are made, and pie charts in which the whole pie does not represent the entire population about which the claims are made (Skills: Literacy, Numeracy, Critical and Creative Thinking, Ethical Understanding)
