Social Statistic 2

Humanities

A Picture is Worth 1,000 Words offers students an opportunity to reflect on the benefits and pitfalls viewing and interpreting statistical charts (see link below). Students should take time to think about and prepare a thoughtful reflection and discussion of the charts for this assignment. Specifically, give thought to whether you notice anything wrong with these charts (you can click the images for larger images). Read each chart description and view the examples of the updated charts. Note: Every other chart is an updated version of the original chart above it. Note that submissions that demonstrate little thought or evidence that students even read the articles or that use “text”-style writing will result in a score of zero.

Based on what you read at the website above and some of the mistakes that were discussed, what do you think about the High Fructose Corn Syrup image below? I saw this image on a self-serve frozen yogurt website. Provide a thoughtful critique of how well (or not well) the graph presents the data. Consider things like the scales of the graph, context, type of graph, etc. Please be detailed/thorough in your response and avoid general statements that provide little evidence of whether or not you understand the material. This is your chance to take on the role of the author from the website you just viewed! Download the image here: obesity-v-hfcs(1).jpg OR view it below:
