Funny graphs - from GraphJam

By Murray Bourne, 31 Jan 2011

GraphJam uses pie charts, histograms and Venn diagrams to give us some really funny insights into the human condition.

Here is a sampling of their more family-friendly graphs:

falling asleep

 

computer issues

 

taste like chicken

 

textbook coverage

 

people who find you on facebook

 

tired

 

What GraphJam is doing in these graphs could be a great concept for a class project in statistics - to encourage students to be creative (almost always missing in math classes), have fun making others laugh, and learn something about expressing statistics in a visual way.

I'll feature some more of these graphs in a later article.

Disclaimer: GraphJam is not always a family-friendly site. With that in mind, here is their link: Graphjam.

HTML: You can use simple tags like <b>, <a href="...">, etc.

To enter math, you can can either:

  1. Use simple calculator-like input in the following format (surround your math in backticks, or qq on tablet or phone):
    `a^2 = sqrt(b^2 + c^2)`
    (See more on ASCIIMath syntax); or
  2. Use simple LaTeX in the following format. Surround your math with \( and \).
    \( \int g dx = \sqrt{\frac{a}{b}} \)
    (This is standard simple LaTeX.)

NOTE: You can mix both types of math entry in your comment.
