Graphs can go a long way in conveying information that might otherwise take several paragraphs to explain. But it is easy to misread or not fully understand the content and context. In this participatory program, we will decipher several graphs based on data from Arnold Arboretum curators and scientists. We will also look at the data and decide whether the data are well-represented and convey the story intended. If reading graphs is intriguing but challenging for you, come gain more practice and insights into grasping “What’s Going On in This Graph?” Fee $10 (students free).
