Tech Apps Lesson for 11/4/2016

Sorry I couldn’t be with you all today. Today’s lesson is focused on lying with charts.

Next, I want you to read through this: https://cseweb.ucsd.edu/~ricko/CSE3/Lie_with_Statistics.pdf

And then, I want you to try it out with your political analysis. Can you misrepresent the numbers to show media bias that doesn’t match reality — without changing the actual numbers?
