Ashford 3: – Week 2 – Discussion 1
Your initial discussion thread is due on Day 3 (Thursday) and you have until Day 7 (Monday) to respond to your classmates. Your grade will reflect both the quality of your initial post and the depth of your responses. Reference the Discussion Forum Grading Rubric for guidance on how your discussion will be evaluated.
Give one example of health-related data (a variable) that can be represented by a pie chart. Do the same for a bar chart and a histogram. Explain why each data example you selected (there will be a total of three different variables) is well represented by the corresponding graph.
Guided Response: Review several of your classmates’ posts and provide a substantive response to two of your peers. Do you agree with the variables they selected for each type of graph? Identify other ways that their three variables could be represented. Describe and justify your choice of alternate graphs and charts.
