Clay Reisler e-mails in a real tearjerker this morning. His class noticed that the meteorologist on the local Fox affiliate was charting the weather with unspecified intervals and axes, basically blaspheming the data representation gods.
So they e-mailed Fox and asked for a clean set of graphs to analyze (ie. no meteorologist cluttering up the frame) and Fox obliged! Then the students’ assignment was to compile a list of recommendations and e-mail them back to Fox. End of story, right? Yeah, except Fox took their recommendations to heart!
I hope you’ll head over to room 2001 and show those kids some love for speaking math to power.
