Visualizing Ratios through Infographics

Tuesday, January 28, 2020


Presented by Flannery Denny

For teachers of grades 4-8

Want students to believe that math is useful? To be able to understand data presented to them? And to be advocates for the community? Let’s teach our young people how to use their math and design skills to create compelling visuals about the issues they care about. When students have the opportunity to ask and answer their own questions in the classroom,motivation is high.

In this hands-on workshop, we will explore strategies for creating visual comparisons digitally as well as through drawings and collage. In the process of creating some of our own, we will experience how time spent producing visuals deepens mathematical thinking and data comprehension.

If you are already passionate about an issue that you’d like to share with your students or community, please bring a few stats that compel you to care about it. Ratios and percentages lend themselves particularly well to this work.
