Data Visualization Assignment

Below I have included an image of my visualized data with the link to the original data website below it.

Percentage of 3rd Grade Children with Caries Experience in the U.S. between 1998 and 2017

I chose to present my data in a poster to show the percentage of third-grade children with caries experience in the United States between 1998 and 2017. I made each tooth on the poster represent a state. Within each tooth, the state it represents is mentioned, as well and the percentage of third graders with caries experience in a specific year. From there, I matched the percentage of children with caries experience to the percentage of the tooth-colored grey. The greyer the tooth is, the more children in third grade have experienced caries in a certain state. The four teeth at the top of the poster with no grey, have no information given on caries experience on the website. Therefore, they are not colored at all. The background of my poster is red to represent the inside of the mouth. I believed that it was best to demonstrate this data in a poster because it is easy to read for my targeted audience. Since this is about caries experience in children, I believed that the poster would be the easiest way that children can read and interpret the data.

Reflection

2 Things I did Well

  1. I added quotes that were relevant and helped support my argument. I selected the right quotes and integrated them at appropriate times.
  2. My essay was very organized and well-structured. Ideas were separated and the format of the essay was correct.

 2 Things I Want to Improve

  1. I did have a lot of vagueness, “Deadwood” and repetition that I would like to cut out next time.
  2. I would like to add some more creativity to my introduction, hook, and conclusion. I definitely need to add a more interesting hook to make it more attention-grabbing.
