"If we let science do the talking you'd hear that the brain is a real sucker for visual information." JIU University
Info graphics are a visually stunning way to deliver facts and statistics. YOU can make their own infographics to explain data. There are some great infographic portals like Statista you can use.

They also require lots of research, reading, and analysis to create.


Start with simple visuals, older students can work out formulas for areas of circles squares etc and represent them as proportional percentages, and make art math masterpieces. This turns data into a landscape you can explore with your eyes, an information map. We are all visualisers now. There is something quite magical about visual information it is effortless.

This one is for chopsticks.
