Exploring the Intersection of Statistics and Art through the Dear-Data Project

The 8th graders are currently in the middle of a project that explores the intersection of Statistics and Art.  The project is modeled after the Dear Data  project.  In our SGS version, the students brainstormed topics that they would be interested in collecting micro-data about, and then visualizing it in an artistic format (see some finished examples below).  After collecting and visualizing their data in an artistic format, the students also learned to organize and graph their data in Google Sheets and Excel.

Round 1 topics were:  Music, Complaints, and I Love You.  Round 2 choices are: Laughter, Screen Time, or Positive/Negative thoughts.  And Round 3 will be Designer’s Choice!
