I’m currently teaching a Data Visualization class in the McDonough School of Business at Georgetown University. To celebrate Pi Day yesterday, each student was given a pie chart I found online and asked to remake it. The rules were simple:

  1. They had 30 minutes to create a new, static visualization from the pie chart provided.
  2. They could use any tool they wanted.
  3. If the data are hard to read or incorrect, they could ballpark it (making sure it sums to 100%!).
  4. Give the visualization a descriptive title. If no title is given in the original pie chart, make one up. If a poor title is given, fix it.

So, in no particular order, here are the remakes students came up with.

Happy Pi Day!
