Infographics for Math (Like Data Fried)

I had the pleasure of speaking with some of my favorite math teachers today, and we had a "wouldn't it be cool if" moment, so here goes . . .

Wouldn't it be cool if our students used Google's Public Data Explorer or the Pew Research Center to create some great infographics* with Visual.ly? Yeah, I think it WOULD be cool! If your students are doing projects like this, please comment and let us know how it's going. We'd love to see their work!

*Infographics are a way to visualize data; they help viewers see the meaning behind statistics.
