Now I'm starting to think about if I've been duped by data.

Kathleen, I like your examples of misrepresenting data. It is one of the ways that organisations often try to influence people. I am reading your post from Western Australia.

Hi Kathleen

Mr Montgomery here. I teach maths to kids your age in Perth Western Australia.

Thanks for taking the time to write in your blog. I'm sure Mr Harbeck appreciates it.

These are good examples. It would be even better if you could describe in your own words how each example misrepresents the data

Good job Kathleen ! I like how your scribe turned out. The only thing wrong with it is the pictures. I think they are a little too small, but other then that you did well.

Good job Kathleen ! Love the post, but put some more words for the definition thing, so it's easier to understand and makes you look smarter.

Good job. I like how much pictures you posted. If you wanted to make it perfect, you could have labeled your circle graph. Good job though.
