A disaster relief nonprofit organization is requesting proposals for their campaign to raise awareness of the human and financial impacts of earthquakes. Students will explore graphical representations of numeric data and categorical data and how best to represent and interpret data. Students will demonstrate their understanding by communicating accountable content through a flyer for the campaign that illustrates data for a particular region of the world and worldwide human and financial impact data.
