Homework for Monday 6/12:  In week three, we’ll be discussing data visualization. To be able to create effective data visualizations, it’s important for you to develop your visual literacy skills. On Monday, June 12th, you’ll have the opportunity to develop and apply evaluative criteria to various visualizations.

On Monday morning, please be prepared to share three data visualizations that you’ve found. Your visualizations may be on websites (have the URLs!) or they may be printed copies of something you found in a book, magazine, or newspaper. Ideally, each of you will bring at least one visualization that you think is “good,” and at least one that you think is “bad.” The third can be good, bad, a combination of good and bad, or one that you’re just not sure about. Your visualizations do not need to be related to your projects, but they can be about topics that are of interest to you.

For Next week (before Tuesday’s session): Install Tableau Public on your computers
