Andy Larsen, The Salt Lake Tribune, Math & Stats Colloquium

Special Event

Making data work: how to turn numbers into knowledge
As the Salt Lake Tribune data columnist, Andy Larsen's job is to turn the numbers in our world into insight for a general audience. So how do you best do that? Andy will describe how he chooses topics to cover, and the process of understanding those topics. Most important: he'll show how to present data in an intuitive way, in both graphics and words.
