Dr. Jennifer Wall and Dr. Christine Benson

An article by Dr. Jennifer Wall, assistant professor of mathematics and statistics, and Dr. Christine Benson, associate professor of mathematics and statistics, is featured this month as an "Editor's Pick" among articles published during the last year in journals of the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics.

Their article, titled "So Many Graphs, So Little Time" was published in Mathematics Teaching in the Middle School in September 2009.

Wrote MTMS Editor Sara-Lynn Gopalkrishna: "By thinking about whether a graph represents frequency or relative frequency, attributes or variation, or categorical or numerical data, students and teachers can better articulate how to read any graph and not be misled by one they thought they understood. The graphs shown here include both familiar and possibly unfamiliar ones and will help students find new ways to represent old data."
