Data visualization in introductory courses
Data visualization is the presentation of data in quickly identifiable graphic formats like statistical graphs, plots, information graphics and tables. Easy-to-learn computer software enables users to bring to life large, online data sets in a variety of disciplines. We discuss our experience applying data visualization to Economics 111 (Introduction to Economics) during fall semester. In particular, we will present examples of student work and some of the lessons we learned along the way.
