Data Science Lesson 4: Data presentation/visualisation

In this lesson you will explore different ways of visualising data. This includes some charts and diagrams you will have met before along with some that might be new to you.

In this activity you will explore which factors affect the life expectancy for different countries using one of the MEI large data sets. You will meet examples of different types of charts used for presenting data.

In this activity you will explore whether the changes in life expectancy since 1991 have been similar for different regions of England and different boroughs of London using one of the MEI large data sets. You will use time series graphs to help visualise these changes.

In lesson 3 you explored a question relating to a data set. You can now practise the techniques from this lesson by adding visualisations to the investigation you started in lesson 3.
