Plot This! (MIT Engineering K-12 Video Pilot)

The same set of data can send many different messages, depending on the context you present it in. The first thing you want to decide when considering how to plot your data is what message you are trying to send. The type of graph you decide to use will also affect that message. We’ll share with you several different types of graphs as well as some rules of thumb for which graphs to use when and some pitfalls to watch out for when making or reading plots.
