Let's see what the people in this class think with a show of hands.
Transum Home Shine + Write Live Data Statistics
This is a visual aid designed to be projected onto a whiteboard for whole class exposition. It shows the difference between some basic graphs and charts which students may choose to use when presenting data collection projects. Students can come up with their own ideas for questions they would like to ask the rest of the class. They could design a questionnaire to collect data but should be careful that theirs is not like this bad survey.

"Useful, but it's distracting and counterintuitive the way the key in the colour pie chart doesn't match the colours mentioned. I'm sure it could be fixed so that the sector representing "Red" was red, and so on.
[Transum: Sorry Matthew. It has now been fixed as requested.]"
