Our school report

Now we know what people thought of us! Today we looked at the feedback forms from our visits to The Swinton High School. We thought about how to present the information in an interesting and accessible way, and decided to use pie charts and tag clouds. Statistical graphics like these have an interesting history - did you know that Florence Nightingale was one of the pioneers?

The pie charts cover these questions:
  • Would you recommend this sort of activity to other students?
  • Do you think that the Mutating Messages project has changed your attitude towards Statistics?
  • How much Statistics do you think you learned from the session?
