The activity is designed as a follow-up to my Data Bias activity (posted for free). Student use what they learned about data bias to create data presentations (graphs, charts) that help prove their point. Multiple scenarios are given where students are trying to convince their parents that their grades/behavior aren't bad.
This activity helps students internalize the power of data bias and makes them more likely to look out for this bias in the real world. This makes for a really fun homework assignment or in class assessment of students mastery of the bias concepts.
This assignment can be extended to give student practice in excel graph creation if the technology is available for them to use.
